Data handling in large-scale electron microscopy

The development of high throughput electron microscopy techniques in the last decade has made increasingly large imaging projects possible. Now that systems have the stability and throughput to enable imaging of these large volumes, the focus has shifted from microscope operation towards handling and analyzing the resulting data in a meaningful manner. However, efficient handling of large projects’ output is still very challenging. Here are the main four challenges of data handling that affect large-scale electron microscopy projects.
