ready Broad Bioimage Benchmark Collection


General Information
The Broad Bioimage Benchmark Collection (BBBC) is a collection of freely downloadable microscopy image sets. Researchers are encouraged to use these image sets as reference points when developing, testing, and publishing new image analysis algorithms for the life sciences. In addition to the images themselves, each set includes a description of the biological application and some type of "ground truth" (expected results).
