MiToBo - A microscope image analysis toolbox

The Microscope Image Analysis Toolbox MiToBo is an extension for the widely used image processing application ImageJ.
MiToBo ships with a set of ready-to-use plugins that focus on the analysis of biomedical images acquired by various
types of microscopes.
Furthermore, MiToBo offers a framework for developing plugins that have properties not available in ImageJ.
Especially, MiToBo completely separates the implementation of image processing algorithms from the user interface, but
still offers full compatibility to all ImageJ features.
The underlying concept of operators which link the processing steps to a directed graph structure, allows, for example
the automatic documentation of the whole analysis process that lead from the input image to the analysis results.
