Abstract

Imaging data are used in the life and biomedical sciences to measure the molecular and structural composition and dynamics of cells, tissues and organisms. Datasets range in size from megabytes (MB) to terabytes (TB) and usually contain a combination of binary pixel data and metadata that describe the acquisition process and any derived results. The OMERO image data management platform allows users to securely share image datasets according to specific permissions levels: data can be held privately, shared with a set of colleagues, or made available via a public URL. Users control access by assigning data to specific Groups with defined membership and access rights. OMERO’s Permission system supports simple data sharing in a lab, collaborative data analysis, and even teaching environments. OMERO software is open source and released by the OME
