Geropathology Imaging - Part of the The Jackson Laboratory Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging


Visualizing results is really important, we have devleoped a method for “painting” the age scores from the aging classifer so you cna visualize where your tissue is aging.  

 If you have not installed these programs you can get directions to do that here Required Software there are also links to the manuals and tutorials that both groups provide. 

We will do with in a Jupyter Notebook.   There are two ways to open a notebook we will provide directions using anaconda but you can do this on the command line by following the directions in jupyter


Open Anaconda

If you need to click install and folow directions otherwise, Launch jupyter notebook

A jupyter notebook should open in your browser



Open a new juptyer notebook using python 3

Copy the painting.ipynb script

You can get the script by downloading it from here

Specific Tutorial on getting the code from Github is provided here  (Note: use the painting.ipynbscript)

Choose Run 

Add a New Cell 

 Adjust these file paths to match your project



tissue_image_path is  directory where your stitched file are this should be surrounded by double “

mask_path is the directory where to put the Complied age scores are this should be surrounded by double “

image_heatmap_path is the directory where you would like the painted images this should be surrounded by double “

If you are using our classifier the mask_bounds should be [-4 ro 4] 

Choose Run

Painted files .png should be in output directory for each slide
