Advances in imaging technologies allow the plant nucleus to be analysed in incredible detail.
INDEPTH is promoting the use of an image repository of 3D images of plant nuclei. This initiative is focused on the 3D images acquired by INDEPTH members and we hope will contribute to enhancing the visibility of imaging excellence in plant science.
The INDEPTH Image Repository is an open access facility to benefit the plant science community. This is hosted on the
OMERO servers at Florida State University (Curator- Hank Bass).
December 2020 Update: Tristan Dubos, Sophie Desset and Christophe Tatout have uploaded a training dataset of wide-field images of 114 nuclei to use with their new
NucleusJ 2.0 publication.
In addition they have also added a large dataset of both images and segmented images.
January 2021 Update: Hank Bass provides an overview to the INDEPTH Omero Repository.
The INDEPTH Image Repository has three main applications:
1. Teaching datasets : for education purposes, e.g. - use in seminars, courses, lectures
2. Training datasets : for software benchmarking
3. Sharing knowledge with collaborators: to facilitate collaboration and data sharing.
The repository is a two-way facility where users can access the images and can also submit images for inclusive.
The INDEPTH Image Repository welcomes the submission of:
