• Quantifying Calcium Oscillations

    Calcium oscillations signify communication between zona glomerulosa cells of the mouse adrenal gland. Researchers in the Barrett Lab can capture these oscillatory events with calcium imaging, but they had difficulty analyzing the results. The Barrett Lab was in need of a comprehensive MATLAB program for quantitative analysis of the intracellular calcium signals from their cell imaging experiments. Prior to Research Computing’s involvement in the project, the Barrett Lab had been using fragments of code to analyze their data with little success. Research Computing developed a MATLAB application to create an efficient, centralized workflow that is also accessible to people who are new to MATLAB and programming.
