PyMICE - a Python® library for mice behavioural data analysis
PyMICE is a Python® library for mice behavioural data analysis.
The library can be used for loading and analysing of data obtained from IntelliCage™ system in an intuitive way in Python programming language.
The library provides user with an object oriented application programming interface (API) and a data abstraction layer. It also comes with auxiliary tools supporting development of analysis workflows, like data validators and a tool for workflow configuration.
The library is available under GPL3 license.
We ask that that reference to our paper as well as to the library itself is provided in any published research making use of PyMICE.
