EBImage is an open source image processing and analysis package for the statistical programming language R. Its primary goal is to enable automated analysis of large sets of images such as those obtained in high-throughput screening. An extensive range of basic image processing and feature extraction methods are provided. EBImage is available through the Bioconductor software project (www.bioconductor.org).
