Caterina Strambio-De-Castillia | Natural methods


Share, teach and sing to bring people together across microscopic standards.

So far it has been “a strange, unorthodox career path,” says Caterina Strambio-De-Castillia, a researcher in the molecular medicine program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She is an “information cell biologist,” she says. “I really love doing that and thinking about how to capture information, how to model information.” In their latest papers, Strambio-De-Castillia and colleagues present the software tool Micro-Meta App1 to help users capture microscopy metadata more easily, e.g. B. the microscope manufacturer or the numerical aperture used. This data collection is consistent with community guidelines, the focus of another paper2; The latter presents light microscopy metadata specifications that extend the data model of the Open Microscopy Environment (OME) to include the requirements of the 4D Nucleome Consortium, BioImaging North America (BINA) and Quality Assessment and Reproduibility for Instruments & Images in Light Microscopy (QUAREP-LiMi.) ). The OMR data model organizes information and makes it easier to relate aspects of a microscopic experiment to other data. Organic formats, developed by the OME, is software that laboratories use to read and write image data in an open, standardized format. The OMR approach is a beginning, she says, not an end point.
