Genuage for multidimensional Point-cloud data visualization and analysis

Single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) is becoming the method of choice in several biological studies. SMLM explores the cellular structures and composition at the nanometric scale. Single-molecule tracking provides also valuable information about the molecular interaction.

New optical methods are now being developed and the complexity of the recorded data is increasing. This raises many concerns regarding data representation, interaction and analysis.

Genuage is an open-source software dedicated for multidimensional point-cloud data visualization and analysis.

Genuage features two visualization modes: (i) a desktop mode for a simple visualization of the data sets on a 2D screen and (ii) a virtual reality mode for an immersive experience inside the point cloud.
