Tiled display of biological images

The Image Viewer is an embeddable web application that allows biologists to observe phenotypic variation between mutants and wildtypes as a result of genetic mutations. It supports side-by-side comparison of images that facilitates discover of phenotypic variations. For instance, the variation in skeletal structure as made visible through X-ray images.

Interactive brightness and contrast
Interact with high-resolution biological images by changing contrast and brightness.
Zooming and panning
Interactively zoom in and zoom out, and select region-of-interest.
Image tiling and compression
Process image files in different formats and generate compressed image tiles for efficient dissemination.
Compare images side-by-side
Compare images by displaying them side-by-side.
Global access
Access biological images from anywhere in the world.

Research collaboration and funding

The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium aims to advance our understanding of the relationship between genes and their functions through phenotyping research. The outcome from this research will help us understand the cause of genetic diseases and provide use with the necessary scientific data that will help us cure human diseases through the development of effective treatment.

This project is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The following are participating research institutes that are producing the phenotype data.
