Description

HypoTrace takes time series of image files as input and output growth rate as well as hook angle measurements for Hypocotyls. The software comes with a build-in Graphical User Interface, which allows the software to be run under three modes:

  • Automatic mode with no user intervention, good for high quality images;

  • Semi-Auto mode with a little bit user intervention, good for fair quality images;

  • Manual mode, work for all images including really bad quality images. The three modes are designed to effectively detect the cotyledons bifurcation point under all conditions.
