General Information
This record was deprecated on June 5, 2019 for the following reason(s): This resource is now deprecated. The data that was stored in this resource has (mostly) been moved to BioStudies, to a specific JCB collection (

The JCB DataViewer is an image hosting and visualization platform for original microscopy image datasets associated with articles published in The Journal of Cell Biology, a peer-reviewed journal published by The Rockefeller University Press. The JCB DataViewer can host multidimensional fluorescence microscopy images, 3D tomogram data, very large (gigapixel) images, and high content imaging screens. Images are presented in an interactive viewer, and the "scores" from high content screens are presented in interactive graphs with data points linked to the relevant images. The JCB DataViewer uses the Bio-Formats library to read over 120 different imaging file formats and convert them to the OME-TIFF image data standard.
