Welcome to the home of FIESTA, a Fluoresecent Image Evaluation Software for Tracking and Analysis developed in MATLAB. The program is able to detect both point-like (e.g. molecules, beads) and elongated objects (e.g. filaments) with nanometer precision and fully automated. It includes further analysis tools like drift correction, color offset calculation, path statistics and mean-square-calculation.
Notice: We switched hosting of the project to the TU Dresden software repository called Fusion Forge! You can help to improve FIESTA by adding pages in the documentation, writing your own tutorials, reporting bugs, requesting enhancements or creating Plug-ins. Just log in with your TU Dresden account or sign up for an external account here.
