napari-locan for Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy
Award napari Plugin Foundation
Only a few Python-based analysis platforms have been developed to process single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) data and provide tools for visualization, as well as cluster and statistical analysis of localization properties. A software package called locan consists of a Python-based library for SMLM data analysis.
This project will develop a new plugin, napari-locan, that can synthesize existing work on locan with napari. The project will provide a reader for loading different SMLM file formats, which will yield pixel-based images that are readily available for further digital image processing with other napari plugins.
