Sandia Single Particle Tracking

Sandia Simple Particle Tracking (Sandia SPT) v 1.0

Download (Matlab Code)

Sandia SPT is intended to provide an easy to use single particle tracking implementation, including source code for all the required steps (spot detection, localization, and linking observations). This software was developed as part of a book chapter1 introducing the reader to techniques to fluorescently label individual proteins in living cells and extract their quantitative dynamics. As such, algorithms were selected for their ease of use and understandability, not necessarily to represent the state of the art. Please see the book chapter for more detailed information and instructions on how to use Sandia SPT.
