How phosphorylated histone H2AX, known as gamma-H2AX, functions in the cellular response to DNA double-strand breaks is the subject of intensive investigation. Recent research in yeast and mammalian cells shows that gamma-H2AX facilitates post-replicational DNA repair by recruiting cohesin, a protein complex that holds sister chromatids together.
High-throughput, image-based screens of cellular responses to genetic or chemical perturbations generate huge numbers of cell images. Automated analysis is required to quantify and compare the effects of these perturbations. However, few of the current freely-available bioimage analysis software tools are optimized for efficient handling of these images.… (More)
