plant-image-analysis get a (small) redesign

Guillaume Lobet | 2016-09-14 | image analysis database

After 3 years, the http://www.plant-image-analysis.org website got a small re-design. Nothing major, but small improvement to make the navigation easier. The main changes are on the front page, where we included the Isotope plugin for an easy sorting of the different tools categories. As a result, no more page re-loading is needed. We also change a bit the design of the front page, to include more information about every tool. Check it out! More...

When Bilbo left the Shire, he told Frodo these words: You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might swept off to. Picture from Paul Jarvis This is how I feel right now, on my first day in my own lab. Today I step onto my own science journey without knowing where it will lead me. And I am looking forward to it! I created this website to host and present all the lab's productions. Well, I cheated a bit, since I filled it with my previous work. But, as … More...

The story behind the Root System Markup Language

If you have ever analysed root system images, you might now the unspoken truth: it requires a great deal of time and efforts! Either you work with an automated tracing software (such as EZ-Rhizo or RootSystemAnalyzer) and as soon as the root systems are getting old (more than 10 days) you'll need to spend quite some time correcting the detection; or you work with a semi-automated tool (such as SmartRoot or RootNav) and you'll have to go through every single image to trace the roots. The good… More...

The current state of plant image analysis software tools

Nobody questions it anymore: image analysis is an essential tool in plant sciences. From the object detection algorithm used by the microscope software to the dedicated ImageJ plugin for rosette area measurements, images analysis tools and methods are presents in many plant researchers' pipeline. In this post, I will try to give a short overview of the existing plant image analysis tools (mainly with data coming from the plant-image-analysis.org website). I will also discuss some of the current… More...

Efficient note taking using nvAlt, TextExpander and Hazel.

Guillaume Lobet | 2015-02-10 | productivity writing

As I scientist, I write a lot and in various ways. I write notes and ideas. I write projects. Papers. Reviews. Blog posts. Codes. Pretty much everything. As a consequence, I need the right tools to write, organise and find all these document. I also like to keep my folders well organised (by projects / experiments / ...). This is important, as I want my different project folders to be complete and contains everything related to the project. On top of that, I am a plain text lover (fast, light… More...
