A Database on Histological Images of Murine Splenic Germinal Centers

GCImagePresenter is a database on 3,457 histological images of murine splenic germinal centers taken at different time points during a primary hapten-carrier immune response in BALB/c mice. Every image is accompanied by an evaluation of area size and cell numbers for various types of cells.

GCImagePresenter was created by N. Wittenbrink and M. Or-Guil, Systems Immunology Lab, Department of Biology, Humboldt University Berlin, and Research Center ImmunoSciences, Charité.

We will be glad to answer questions and discuss the data. Please contact us at m.orguil@biologie.hu-berlin.de.
