Dear All,

Welcome to the latest edition of the BioImage Informatics Facility (BIIF) newsletter!


The next Call4Help session is coming up next Tuesday, December 5, 9:30 – 11:30, information here. Note that you can always contact us under to set-up a meeting and receive support on image analysis.
The idea of the Call4Help session is to provide combined support on both the image analysis and the microscopy part of a project. For this we team-up with Sylvie Le Guyader, Head of the LCI Microscopy Facility, KI.


We are thrilled to announce the release of TissUUmaps version 3.2!

Here are the key highlights:

  • New Annotation Tools: Developed in collaboration with Sanofi Digital R&D. You can now draw and edit regions in a faster and more intuitive way.
  • Improved region rendering performance: you can now load thousands of regions without any performance issues.
  • Enhanced Region Tab: We’ve completely refactored the region tab to efficiently handle large number of items, including detailed analysis of individual regions.
  • GeoJSON Import and Geobuf (.pbf) Support: Import regions from multiple GeoJSON files and leverage Geobuf (.pbf) region files for larger dataset.
  • Advanced Marker Options: Customize markers with new outline and fill options.
  • Better drag-and-drop support in the Qt version.
  • Validation of .tmap Files: Ensure better compatibility with .tmap file validation through tissuumaps-schema.
  • New installers for macOS (.dmg) and Linux (.deb) in addition to the old Windows installer.
