I would like to write additional information into the mamut- xml file that I want to use for further analyses of my cell lineage with python. I want to write information on cell generation, identity of sub lineages or simple comments and cell fates into the attributes of the spot objects that are listed in the gamut-generated xml-file.
Trying around a bit I found out that I can add information in the format of key-value pairs (e.g. *cell_generation=„1“ ) to a spot - object. MaMut will still open the file normally.
A problem occurs when I enter information as a string of letters (e.g. fate=„mesoderm“ ). Then FIJI gives an exception when I try to open the file. I also tried adding appropriate entries to the spot features at the beginning of the file and changing the entry for isint from ‚true’ to ‚false‘.
Is there a way for me to write plain text into the spot-objects?
I would be very grateful for any advice.
