Hello! We have previously used CellProfiler 1 with great success in our lab (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022282811004755 by ) and are enjoying the improvements in version 2. We are going to be analyzing about 2.5 million 3-channel image sets, so we are working on installing CP2 onto the Linux cluster here (http://www.uvacse.virginia.edu/resources/itc-clusters/).
We love CellProfiler and haven’t experienced any problems with it, but we’re having a hard time convincing the personnel in charge of the cluster to be willing to install it. Part of the objection to installing either the prebuilt or the step-by-step version of CellProfiler was the following:
Do you have any comments that might help explain why the current installation process works the way it does, or advice regarding what might make the cluster personnel more willing to move forward with installation?
