The Oxford Invention Fund (OIF) has awarded Steve Taylor, Head of the Computational Biology Research Group, £27000 to build Zegami, a high throughput image centric analysis software tool, building on the HTML5 Pivot Viewer software (Taylor and Noble, 2014).
 
The OIF fund was devised to ensure that smart ideas will be developed to a stage where they can be transferred from the University to business.  It provides an opportunity for donors to support the development of technology in Oxford, and help secure the University’s innovative infrastructure.
