We are delighted to introduce WormLab 2.0. Our latest version of WormLab features an intuitive step-by-step workflow to analyze the locomotion and behavior of C. elegans and is now available to Mac and Windows 8 users. We’ve worked hard to improve our tracking algorithms, particularly our self-overlap and entanglement algorithms. We’ve added whole plate mode for tracking many worms on a plate and added extensive camera support for over 1,400 different camera models. Tracking is much faster throughout and the 64-bit version is even faster than the 32-bit version.
“Researchers are often overwhelmed by the painstaking frame by frame data collection process, often performed over hundreds of frames, which can be a tedious process. With WormLab, video capture and tracking only take minutes so that researchers can focus on the meaningful part – analysis and interpretation. Furthermore, the collected data is easily exported for more custom analysis to other software like Excel or Matlab,” says Jeff Sprenger, VP of Research.
