You may have recently seen the Center for Open Bioimage Analysis ( COBA <> ) name and logo around various parts of the forum <>; we are a new center from Kevin Eliceiri (UW-Madison) and Anne Carpenter's (Broad Institute) labs whose mission is to serve the biology community’s growing need for sophisticated software for light microscopy image analysis. We will do this in two main ways

In collaboration with biological partner labs, we will create new tools and improve existing tools to make new analyses possible and existing analyses easier.
We will do outreach to the biology community to help spread knowledge on how to best apply bioimage analysis tools and approaches.
In order to do both of these well, we need a representative picture of the kinds of images our community is analyzing, what they think is working well, what they think is NOT working well, and what sorts of outreach and educational materials they prefer (in person, written, videos, etc).

To that end, we’ve written a brief 10-15 minute survey <> (open until July 31st) to ask you, the community, what you work on and how you’d like to communicate and collaborate with us! We would especially ask you share this with your local microscopy and image analysis communities - the more representative of a sample we get of users, the better we’ll serve the whole field.

Thank you so much, and if you want to learn more, please reach out to the COBA Team via our website <>.
