Software tools for single-cell tracking and quantification of cellular and molecular properties

The new software tools allow the continuous quantification of protein expression over time (source: HMGU)

Scientists at the Institute of Computational Biology and their collaboration partners from the ETH Zürich have developed software that allows observing cells for weeks while also measuring molecular properties. The software is freely available and has now been introduced in Nature Biotechnology. The software tools can be used for robust and efficient analysis of large volumes of continuous time-lapse imaging data and are not limited to specific cell or image types.

The software is freely available, and can be downloaded from the following link:
