In this section you can find images sets that were used along my research work. Some of these image set are not available in their original location anymore. Alternative public links are provided.

Microarray image sets

Sun image sets

mini-MIAS image set

RNAi image sets

During my research, some RNAi images here also used to evaluate the performance of several compression tools. The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT provide a set of RNAi images that can be obtained here. The set used is known as Human HT29 Colon Cancer and it can be obtained here. The files in the previous location are in DIB format but it is possible to extract the image itself using the bio-formats java library, for example.
