The Carpenter Lab is based at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Our research group develops advanced methods and software tools to quantify and mine the rich information present in cellular images to yield biological discoveries. Our laboratory is best known for our open source software packages CellProfiler and CellProfiler Analyst.
"CellProfiler is free open-source software designed to enable biologists without training in computer vision or programming to quantitatively measure phenotypes from thousands of images automatically. See our papers on analyzing cell images and non-cell images."
"CellProfiler Analyst is free open-source software for exploring and analyzing large, high-dimensional image-derived data. It includes machine learning tools for identifying complex and subtle phenotypes. See our papers on data visualization and machine learning."
