oxIR was developed by the Image Analysis group of IPK Gatersleben within the scope of cooperation with R. Zornow [1,2] aiming to provide an efficient possibility to estimate oxygen content and so respiration rates of seed samples of grid cells over time obtained by abc facility. The abc facility generates fluorescence images as time series of a defined grid.
The oxIR tool is implemented to semi-automatically process a time series of abc images (a set of images) consisting of an arbitrary number of samples in order to estimate the oxygen content for each time point and further to calculate the rate of change during time, i.e. the respiration rate of seed samples.
