are zip files containing 8-bit stacks (MetaMorph multiplane TIFF files) acquired on an imaging cytometer.

"53" is the brightfield data, raw and automatic aligned stacks in MetaMorph (Apps menu, MM7.8.6).

"54" is GFP fluorescence, raw and automatic aligned stacks in MetaMorph (Apps menu, MM7.8.6). The GFP fluorescence decreases over time ...

Tattletales: multiplex fluorescent protein biosensors by spatial localization with TALE-FPs, Cas9-FPs, ZF-FPs, LacI-FPs, TetR-FPs, etc.

T-Bow: Rainbow T-cells and Tumor cells (and ES cells, iPS cells, other cells and organisms). You can think of this as "Brainbow meets TALENs/Cas9/ZFNs/other DNA sequence specific binding proteins".

If not familiar with Brainbow, see

If not familiar with TALENs, Cas9, etc, see

Image Z-Series Wrt Nvidia Titan 6 Gb Gpu Cuda Deconvolution, George Mcnamara Apr 2014

Image Z-Series Wrt Nvidia Titan 6 Gb Gpu Cuda Deconvolution, George Mcnamara

George McNamara

Image Z-series wrt NVidia Titan 6 Gb GPU CUDA Deconvolution

This ZIP file contains raw and deconvolved data series from George McNamara, Laurence J.N. Cooper lab, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. I have also included our lab instructions, and a screenshot of the current CUDA deconvolution settings (for dry objective lenses, Manish Butte wrote me to use the immersion medium refractive index, air = 1.0).

Instrument:

Leica DMI6000 inverted fluorescence microscope, Lumencor SOLA LED light source, Leica "L5" GFP filter cube (480/40ex, 505dm, 527/30em).

Leica 20x/0.75 NA objective lens, 1.6x optovar, for 325 nm ...

Robert Murphy's TypIC (typical cell Chooser,

http://murphylab.web.cmu.edu/services/TypIC/

now superseded by PSLID and SLIF

http://murphylab.web.cmu.edu/services/ ), was a "game changer" for me with respect to cell shape analysis. Rather than trying to compute the average of (say) a triangle and a pentagon ... which might result in a square, or a rectange, or some bizarre quadrilateral ... R.M. advocated using the median. OK, in a 2 member dataset this would result in averaging the two shapes (if use ...
