BioQuant Virtual Machine

Background:

BioQuant is a software, initially developed by the Imaing and Informatics Lab at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, for large-scale high performance quantification of macromolecules involved in cell-cell adhesion, genomic instability, and DNA repair proteins, etc., which has been widely used by members at the Life Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for scientific discoveries.

Description:

This project is developed in C/C++ and Qt, and released as a pre-configured virtual machine image for quick deployment by the community. And the scientific publications supported by BioQuant are listed as follows, 

  • Nath, S., Spencer, V.A., Han, J., Chang, H., Zhang, K., Fontenay, G.V., Anderson, C., Hyman, J.M., Nilsen-Hamilton, M., Chang, Y.T., Parvin, B.: Identification of fluorescent compounds with non-specific binding property via high throughput live cell microscopy. PLoS ONE 7(1) (01 2012) e28802.
