Visualizing 3D cellular images and simulations: learn about AGAVE, Cell Feature Explorer, and Simularium

We are developing new approaches to render volumes for visualizing cell images. For example, by adopting approaches such as “cinematic rendering” techniques to cellular volumetric data, users can see fine details and interpret spatial relationships, even in a 2D static printed image. We will describe our open-source visualization software, Advanced GPU Accelerated Volume Explorer (AGAVE), which can be downloaded to use on your image files. We will also show how you can explore, sort, and download our imaging data in our Cell Feature Explorer for your own modeling, analysis, or machine learning tasks. In addition, we will show you how you can explore cell models in our online Simularium, a tool to share, visualize, and interrogate biological simulations. Presented by Kimberly R. Metzler, PhD, Senior Scientific Program Manager, and Kaytlyn Gerbin, PhD, Scientist.
