SyMBac Documentation

SyMBac (Synthetic Micrographs of Bacteria) is a tool to generate synthetic phase contrast or fluorescence images of bacteria. Currently the tool only supports bacteria growing in the mother machine and on agar pads.

Coming soon:
  • Agar pad simulations (working, code being added)

  • Command line interface (currently testing)
