A napari plugin to detect and visualize collective signaling events
- Documentation: https://bgraedel.github.io/arcos-gui
Automated Recognition of Collective Signalling (ARCOS) is an algorithm to identify collective spatial events in time series data, that was written by Maciej Dobrzynski (https://github.com/dmattek). It is available as an R (ARCOS) and python (arcos4py) package. ARCOS can identify and visualize collective protein activation in 2- and 3D cell cultures over time.
This plugin integrates ARCOS into napari. Users can import tracked time-series data in CSV format. The plugin provides GUI elements to process this data with ARCOS. Layers containing the detected collective events are subsequently added to the viewer.
Following analysis, the user can export the output as a CSV file with the detected collective events or as a sequence of images to generate a movie.
You can install
arcos-gui via pip:
pip install arcos-gui
Since version "0.0.2" this plugin is python native with the arcos4py package available.
