About This Service
SLIF finds fluorescence microscope images in on-line journal articles, and indexes them according to cell line, proteins visualized, and resolution. Images can be accessed via the SLIF Web database.
An on-line summary of the architecture of SLIF can be found here.
A presentation on SLIF from the 2008 ISMB conference can be found on the Presentations page.
The initial development of SLIF was supported by grant 017396 from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Tobacco Settlement Fund. Further development is supported by National Institutes of Health grant R01 GM078622, and the development of the external linking capabilities (URL and XML-based) was supported by grant U54 DA021519 to the National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics. Papers from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (USA) used in development and testing of SLIF were obtained with the generous permission of Bruce Alberts and Ken Fulton of the National Academy of Sciences and with the kind assistance of David Lipman and his group at the
