CytoSpec for LINUX
CytoSpec was in the past exclusively available for MIcrosoft Windows OS. The LINUX operating system is known since more than two decades
for its high stability and great versatility which qualify LINUX for broad application in scientific computations. It was thus only a
questions of time to make the software available also for LINUX users. Furtunately, CytoSpec is based on Matlab which is executable
under both operating systems, so no major adaptations of the software code were necessary. Except for some older routines requiring
direct access to the file system and some modifications of the graphical user interface no major changes were necessary when porting
CytoSpec to the LINUX platform.
What are the differences between the Windows and LINUX editions of CytoSpec?
CytoSpec under Windows is a stand alone application which does not require additional commercial software - Windows software
versions use free-of-charge Matlab component runtime (MCR) libaries. Contrary to this, CytoSpec for LINUX represents basically a
collection of p-code routines which rely on a full Matlab installation, i.e. requires a valid Matlab license.
There are no functional differences between Windows and LINUX editions of CytoSpec.
Exception: The function 'Synthon imaging', i.e. the interface between CytoSpec and Synthon's NeuroDeveloper™
software is not available under LINUX. The Synthon imaging function
employs validated artificial neural network models encoded in a Windows dynamic link library (dll) for class predictions of IR, or
