SwimR: A Suite of Analytical Tools for Quantification of C. elegans Swimming Behavior

Description

SwimR is an R-based suite that calculates, analyses, and plots the frequency of C. elegans swimming behavior over time. It places a particular emphasis on identifying paralysis and quantifying the kinetic elements of paralysis during swimming. Data is input to SwipR from a custom built program that fits a 5 point morphometric spine to videos of single worms swimming in a buffer called Worm Tracker.
