The Open Microscopy Environment (OME) organization has long guided the bioimaging community in the establishment of open standard formats such as OME-TIFF. Recently, the Zarr format emerged as an underlying format for multi-dimensional scientific arrays + metadata that is compatible with the modern, cloud-based computing ecosystem. Furthermore, this format addresses the scalability needs for large-scale microscopy volumes generated by state-of-the-art systems.
Neuroimaging community standards such as Microscopy-BIDS, and BRAIN Initiative archives, such as BIL and DANDI, are working on adoption of the format. A suite of visualization and analysis tools are evolving to support the format.
This tutorial provides a basic, working understanding the structure of OME-Zarr and explains how this relates to findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) objectives.
Duration: 0.5 hours.
