MorphoGraphX

MorphoGraphX

MorphoGraphX is a free Linux application for the visualization and analysis of 3D biological datasets. Developed by researchers, it is primarily used for the analysis and quantification of 3D live-imaged confocal data sets.

The main research interests adressed by MorphoGraphX are:

  • Shape extraction
  • Growth analysis
  • Signal quantification
  • Protein localization
