SpectralMagic

Spectral microscopy has the ability to generate a large volume of data in a short period of time. Unfortunately, commercial software has been limited in its ability to handle batch data. I developed a suite of MATLAB scripts called SpectralMagic that address these problems. SpectralMagic leverages the power of Bio-Formats to provide a wealth of microscope metadata. Images are automagically processed with parallelized spectral unmixing algorithms based on their unique metadata attributes.

I started my undergraduate research at an exciting period in cellular and developmental biology. The late 1990’s marked a time when biologists truly got a handle on the genome sequencing business, and, at the turn of the millennium, a new genome was being sequenced each year. Much to the delight of urchinologists, the purple sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, made its way through the sequencing pipeline. That’s where I came in…
