Bio-Imaging’s Big (Data) Problem

August 30, 2013

Using cutting-edge mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) technology, scientists can study tissues, cell cultures and bacterial colonies in unprecedented detail at the molecular level. This information is already helping doctors better diagnose diseases, pharmaceutical researchers develop more effective drugs, and leading to the creation of energy efficient and renewable biofuels. Despite the advances, researchers envision these areas of science progressing much faster—if only they had a standard set of computational tools to easily process, analyze and share these massive datasets. Now, they do—it’s called OpenMSI. More>
