pySolo is a complete suite for sleep analysis in Drosophila and can be used at any stage of the experiment, from data acquisition to data analysis. It is easy to use, intuitive, amazingly fast and easily expandable. Acquisition can be done either using the common IR monitors or video imaging. A module for video analysis is also provided, using regular webcams and infrared lighting. A complete system able to monitor 1500 flies could be setup for anything between $1000 and $3000. pySolo is absolutely free and released as open source project. It runs on any OS.

 

pySolo is developed by Dr Giorgio Gilestro at Imperial College London. 

  • Can be used with various Use pySolo together with your favorite acquisition systems or in conjunction with its own video extension to setup a powerful but inexpensive recording station.

  • Will run on any operating system, including Linux.

  • Intuitive GUI allows you to easily visualize/select/manipulate data for single flies, single days, single monitors, etc.

  • Comprises individual add-on modules (called panels) that are easy to create or modify. 

  • Fast analyses, done on matrices, using the NumPy and SciPy libraries of python. Up to 50x faster than other systems.

  • All data are drawn using the python graphic library matplotlib that allows drawing of publication quality figures exportable as images or vectorial files.

  • Uses a zip-based compressed format to store data - e.g. a file containing data for 32 flies for 200 days at resolution of 1 count per minute is stored in less than 1.5mb and opens in less than 9 seconds.
