GNU Gluco Control: A program that help you manage your diabete
GGC is an open-source java application, intended to help you manage your diabetes. Open-source means that the application is freely available, together with its source code, which means that anybody can help with development.
MedINRIA: Free visualization package for medical diagnosis
MedInria is a multi-platform medical image processing and visualization software. It is free and open-source. Through an intuitive user interface, medInria offers from standard to cutting-edge processing functionalities for your medical images such as 2D/3D/4D image visualization, image registration, diffusion MR processing and tractography.
EEGLAB: An open source environment for electrophysiological signal processing
EEGLAB is a MATLAB toolbox distributed under the free GNU GPL license for processing data from electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and other electrophysiological signals. Along with all the basic processing tools, EEGLAB implements independent component analysis (ICA), time/frequency analysis, artifact rejection, and several modes of data visualization. EEGLAB allows users to import their electrophysiological data in about 20 binary file formats, preprocess the data, visualize activity in single trials, and perform ICA. Artifactual ICA components may be subtracted from the data. Alternatively, ICA components representing brain activity may be further processed and analyzed. EEGLAB also allows users to group data from several subjects, and to cluster their independent components.
BioImageXD: Editor of multidimensional biomedical images
BioImageXD is a free open source software package for analyzing, processing and visualizing multi-dimensional microscopy images.
Anatomy: Didactic anatomical system with augmented reality
Study the complete human body interactively with Anatomy. Learn the most important systems and functions with realistic representations in Augmented Reality.
BioDigital: 3D environment for the exploration of the human body
The BioDigital Human is an interactive, 3D software platform that enables individuals and business to explore and visualize health information, a "Google Earth for the human body". The BioDigital Human was one of the early systems to leverage WebGL, which allows any supported browser to render 3D models in webpages without plugins.
ImageJ: Public domain, Java-based image processing program
ImageJ is a public domain, Java-based image processing program developed at the National Institutes of Health. ImageJ was designed with an open architecture that provides extensibility via Java plugins and recordable macros. Custom acquisition, analysis and processing plugins can be developed using ImageJ's built-in editor and a Java compiler. User-written plugins make it possible to solve many image processing and analysis problems, from three-dimensional live-cell imaging to radiological image processing, multiple imaging system data comparisons to automated hematology systems. ImageJ's plugin architecture and built-in development environment has made it a popular platform for teaching image processing.
Lumosity: The most popular program of celebral entertainment on the web
Lumosity is an online brain training and neuroscience research company based in San Francisco, California. Lumosity offers a brain training program consisting of more than 40 games in the areas of memory, attention, flexibility, speed of processing, and problem solving.
Bio Virus: Bio Virus Structure in 3D Virtual Reality
Have you tried yourself to assemble the coat of the Ebola virus?
I have and my results in interactive 3D virtual reality with Bio Virus and you can enjoy here for free!
In addition to the ebola virus, you can explore here also the structure of the HIV (HIV=human immunodeficiency virus) virus, influenza virus, adenovirus and bacteriophage - the strange but very important virus that infects only the bacterial cells and has played a very important role in the genetics (as well as the adenovirus).
We are working further on the display of the functionallity of these viruses. Until we complete this, we have decided to enable a free preview of this project for you!
ArgusLab: Design of molecular structures for drug development.
ArgusLab is a molecular modeling, graphics, and drug design program for Windows operating systems. It’s getting a little dated by now, but remains surprisingly popular.
