OMERO.searcher is an extension of the OMERO.web client that provides the ability to search for images by their content (e.g., subcellular patterns) rather than just by their annotations.
- finds images whose content, as reflected by subcellular location image features, is similar to one or more query images.
- can use positive and/or negative examples.
- can be iterative, meaning it allows the user to refine the search results (a process referred to as relevance feedback).
