Glotaran (legacy GUI)

Glotaran stands for Global and Target Analysis and was also the name of the now more aptly named glotaran-legacy software when it was first introduced to the scientific community in a 2012 Journal of Statistical Software publication (doi: 10.18637/jss.v049.i03).

This iteration in the development of global and target analysis software is now referred to as ‘glotaran-legacy’, to make room for its successor, pyglotaran, and future derivates.

glotaran-legacy, released as Glotaran 1.2 and 1.5.x, is a tool for interactive global and target analysis of time-resolved spectroscopy and microscopy data. It is an open source software application for which the development was started at the Biophysics department of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), as part of a NWO funded research project, by Joris Snellenburg (Institutional Profile, Home Page) and Sergey Laptenok under supervision of Ivo van Stokkum.
