Looking for big data cellular images? Check out the Data Sets tab at the Cell Image Library.

Don’t forget, if you are applying for a grant soon and your funder requires you to post all your data, we can help. We can handle big data: Our “Human U2OS cells—compound cell-painting experiment” (www.cellimagelibrary.org/pages/project_20269) contains over five million images.

Even if you do not have millions of images, we can help you with your Data Management Plan (DMP). Be sure to contact us before submitting your grant application so we can help with your DMP for your cellular images.

Looking to find cell images on the go? Don’t forget to download the free Cell Image Library mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Just visit the App Store and search for “Cell Library.”

The Cell Image Library (www.cellimagelibrary.org) is a freely accessible, easy-to-search, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells. Portions of the Cell Image Library were developed by ASCB under a Grand Opportunities grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and are now managed by the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research under a perpetual license from ASCB.
