Python implementation of TypiC: Typical Image Selection
typic is a python implementation of the Typical Image Chooser as described in
Markey, M.K., Boland, M.V., and Murphy, R.F. (1999) Towards Objective Selection of Representative Microscope Images. Biophysical Journal 76:2230-2237.
TypIC is also available as a service in the Protein Subcellular Location Image Database (PSLID); though the latter version is not the one described in this repository.
