New project: DILUTED - Detection of Environmental Pollution based on Behavioral Time-series Data From Danio rerio Tracking Experiments

In a new project at the Institute for Environmental Research scientists from the Computational Ecotoxicology group (COPE) develop an algorithm for the standardized and automatized statistical analysis of data from the Light/Dark Transition Test (LDTT) with Danio rerio larvae.

The algorithm is intended to enable direct analysis of raw data from the most common analytical systems. This is an important step towards using the test as a high-throughput screening tool in various different application areas, such as consumer protection and neurotoxicological environmental research.
