Posted by on May 6th, 2020

In a previous blog I explained how animated plots can be made to illustrate the dynamics of data. Animated plots go nicely together with the movies from which the data was extracted. Here, I explain how to display a movie and plot side-by-side, starting from a stack of images and using only open source software.[…]

Dynamic display of data with animated plots

Posted by on April 27th, 2020

Data from time-lapse experiments is often displayed in a graph or plot, to visualize the dynamics of biological systems (Goedhart, 2020). Ironically, the perception of the dynamics is largely lost in a static plot. That’s where animated plots come in. Animated plots are a great way to display the dynamics of the underlying data. Below, I[…]

Selaginella in frame

If you are a plant developmental biologist studying the Selaginella spikemosses, you might be interested in this beautiful animation that shows the life cycle of the Selaginella, Selaginella apoda Life Cycle: Selaginella apoda from Ciaran Moloney on Vimeo. And if you are captured by the simple beauty of this plant, you might also like a[…]
