Background: Innovations in biological and biomedical imaging produce complex high-content and multivariate
image data. For decision-making and generation of hypotheses, scientists need novel information technology tools
that enable them to visually explore and analyze the data and to discuss and communicate results or findings with
collaborating experts from various places.
Results: In this paper, we present a novel Web2.0 approach, BioIMAX, for the collaborative exploration and analysis
of multivariate image data by combining the webs collaboration and distribution architecture with the interface
interactivity and computation power of desktop applications, recently called rich internet application.
Conclusions: BioIMAX allows scientists to discuss and share data or results with collaborating experts and to
visualize, annotate, and explore multivariate image data within one web-based platform from any location via a
standard web browser requiring only a username and a password. BioIMAX can be accessed at http://ani.cebitec.
