Telometric

Synopsis:

Telometric is a software package that enables users to assess the sizes and distribution of telomeric fragments represented in autoradiograph images of agarose gels. The hybridization from multiple matching telomeric probes is corrected for and simple statistics and plots are generated for each selected lane. Telometric is available as an NIH Image macro or as a stand-alone Java application. The source code is released under the GNU general public license (GPL).
