News: Bioimage Archive


The Bioimage Archive has been announced today by EMBL-EBI. The BioImage Archive stores and distributes biological images that are useful to life-science researchers.

EMBL-EBI has been collaborating with the wider bioimaging community to address some of these challenges. Pilot projects coordinated by EMBL-EBI, such as EMPIAR, and collaborations such as the Cell- and Tissue- Image Data Resource (IDR), have laid the groundwork for the creation of the BioImage Archive. The project has been made possible through capital support from a recent Strategic Priority Fund award from UK Research and Innovation.

DFG approved funding for 13 optical microscopes at German universities. The call is based, among others, on a proposal submitted by GerBI-GMB Core Facility Managers within a call for major instrumentation initiatives. DFG invited applications for highly developed but not yet widely established optical microscopy technologies as part of a major instrumentation initiative in January 2018. The call, entitled “Innovative, Experimental Optical Microscopes for Research”, attracted considerable interest from universities, with a total of 50 proposals received.
