Glencoe Software and Open Microscopy Environment Founder Awarded the BBSRC Innovator of the Year 2011
Date:3/31/2011

SEATTLE, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Glencoe Software, a leading provider of image data management tools for life science and biopharmaceutical research and a member of the Open Microscopy Environment Consortium, is proud that its founder Professor Jason Swedlow and the whole OME Team have been named this year's BBSRC Innovator of the Year. The BBSRC is the United Kingdom's primary funder of academic research and training in the non-clinical life sciences, and along with the Wellcome Trust, a major funder of research and development undertaken by the OME Team. The Innovator of the Year Award recognizes individual and institutional commitment to realizing the social and economic potential of excellent research.

The judges' view was that the impact of OME was of remarkably wide benefit due to the flexibility and openness of the approach. The business model is very clever and allows for open source software development - as in, for example, Linux, Java, Mozilla's Firefox - and at the same time commercial opportunities are possible by licensing and commercialization of Bio-Formats through Glencoe Software. In this way there are both economic and social impacts from the work.

Prof. Swedlow founded OME along with Dr. Peter Sorger and Ilya Goldberg in 2000, and has helped direct the project ever since. As an open source, community-led consortium, OME is now the leading provider of software solutions for biological image management. Central to its success has been the development and uptake of OME-TIFF, a standard image format that can be used across a range of different microscopy platforms, Bio-Formats, the world-leading library for accessing image data stored in proprietary file formats, and OMERO, the world's leading open source image data management platform.

Prof. Swedlow said, "It is a great honor to accept this award. Our vision has always been to create a global standard for imaging software and the community that has grown up around the
