Python-bioformats is a Python wrapper for Bio-Formats, a standalone
Java library for reading and writing life sciences image file formats.
Bio-Formats is capable of parsing both pixels and metadata for a large
number of formats, as well as writing to several formats.
Python-bioformats uses the python-javabridge to start a Java virtual
machine from Python and interact with it. Python-bioformats was
developed for and is used by the cell image analysis software
CellProfiler (cellprofiler.org).
