Images of cells, when suitably stained, contain a vast amount of biological information. These images are now generated by the hundreds of thousands in experiments that seek to determine the functions of genes and to identify useful chemicals for research and for potential therapeutics.

The Broad's Imaging Platform is a world leader in developing advanced methods that quantify and mine the rich information present in cellular images, propelling biological discoveries. By integrating genome-scale approaches with the most advanced methods for high-throughput image analysis, we help generate and test novel biological hypotheses. Additionally, we develop open-source software tools and help biologists to apply them to important questions in biomedicine.
