I'm a cell biologist who mainly needs image analysis and processing for confocal microscope images, plus some other simple analysis of images with biological relevance. I've used Fiji in the past but have just discovered Bio7. Which should I choose to download now? If I install Bio7 and add in the Fiji plugin will I have both sets of plugins and fullest options? Thanks for help and advice.....
Bio7 integrates ImageJ as a plugin and some ImageJ2 plugins. You can extend Bio7 with all ImageJ plugins. Special FIJI plugins (based on ImageJ2 libraries) won't work out of the box if not comatible with IJ1.
Here is what I can say about Bio7:
Bio7 is a dynamic programming environment for Java, R, J(P)ython, BeanShell, Groovy, etc...
It has a tight integration of R and ImageJ if you want to combine image analysis data with R statistics,see:
