VisBio is a biological visualization tool designed for easy visualization and analysis of multidimensional image data. VisBio uses Bio-Formats to import files as the Bio-Formats library originally grew out of our efforts to continually expand the file format support within VisBio.


VisBio is bundled with Bio-Formats, so no further installation is necessary.


It should be possible to use a newer version of Bio-Formats by overwriting the old bio-formats.jar and optional libraries within the VisBio distribution. For Mac OS X, you will have to control click the VisBio program icon, choose “Show Package Contents” and navigate into Contents/Resources/Java to find the JAR files.
