Caltech biologists in Michael Elowitz’s lab have developed complex systems to grow, record, and analyze families of cells. Using videos taken with a microscope, they track the DNA information of lineages of cells as they divide into new ones.
This process led to a final design, a hybrid 2d small multiple overview of the data paired with a three-dimensional detail view. The final result is working software, targeted to solve the needs of current hard scientific projects
Recognition and Follow-on Funding
The Elowitz Lab invested $30K for Santiago Lombeyda to finalize and successfully launch the browser-based software. The software has also been shared with other labs. http://cellerie.caltech.edu/
