Second prize for the best posters at the second conference of developers and users of ImageJ

Saturday 8 November 2008, by Gilles Carpentier

The "Dot Blot Analyzer" was awarded second prize for the best works presented to the posters session at the second conference of the ImageJ [1] users and developers software, held at the Centre de Recherche Henri Tudor in Luxembourg.

The presented software, an analyzer of dot-blot, for the first time completely programmed by means of the "macro" language of ImageJ, was conceived within the framework of the researches on the prion diseases led by Ouidja Mohand Ouidir et Dulcé Papy-Garcia [2].

This program, which allows to analyze and model an image of dot-blot in 3 mouse-click, is available on the National Institute of Health (NIH) web site of Bethesda [3].
