Ethomics and sleep

pySoloa multi-platform software for sleep/activity analysis in Drosophila. pySolo aims at improving sharing – and communication – among researchers in the field ofsleep in invertebrates. Works with TriKinetics software.

ethoscopeThe ethoscope platform is a collection of interconnected tools allowing biologists to design experiments, acquire and analyse a large amount of behavioural data. Provides a hardware and software solution.

rethomicsR package to study data from high-throughput animal behaviour monitoring
