Researchers are presented with ever larger volumes of data as a result of the increasing resolution and sensitivity of cameras and the automation of microscopy workflows. This data often contains insights linking structure and function at the molecular, cellular, or tissue level, and it can be used to decipher mechanisms and energetics of biological processes. Scientists need to deal with large datasets spanning a variety of microscopy modalities including bright field, fluorescence, laser confocal, AFM, TEM, and SEM.
MATLAB® provides a platform not just for microscopy, but for all types of biomedical imaging including cytology, histology, in vivo-imaging, and behavior tracking. This platform is flexible and customizable, enabling you to include your own unique workflows and analytics, and allowing you to integrate with other tools. It scales to deal with large data or to combine different modalities and types of data. As a result, MATLAB has become a platform of choice for researchers seeking to:
