    • It's also nice if you cite the website (www.cellprofiler.org) and email us so that we are aware of your publication, but this is much less critical than citing the publications.

    • If you used CellProfiler in a publication and would like to include your pipelines as online supplemental information, we are willing to host the pipelines here. Please contact us for more information.
