Open-source, MATLAB-based software for automated data processing and quantification of edited magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) data.
Visit our website for the latest news on Gannet and our developments in edited MRS methodology.
Gannet runs in MATLAB (we recommend using the latest release if possible). Additionally, Gannet requires that the following MATLAB toolboxes are installed:
- Image Processing
- Signal Processing
- Statistics and Machine Learning
To run the voxel co-registration and structural image segmentation modules, SPM12 must be installed.
The simplest way to install Gannet 3.0 is to download the zipped master folder, unzip it and then move the Gannet3.0-master folder to your MATLAB directory. To add the folder to your search path, run the following line of code in the command window of MATLAB:
Alternatively, open the Set Path dialog box from the MATLAB menu, click 'Add with Subfolders', find the Gannet3.0-master folder and then select it. When done, press 'Save' to permanently save the Gannet folder to MATLAB's search path.
Bugs, Contributions, Queries
For bug reporting, contribution requests and/or queries, please contact us at: email@example.com
Versioning is conducted on a module-specific basis using the style YYMMDD. That is, each Gannet module has its own release version. Major changes or addition of new functionalities are reflected in the version updates, while minor bug fixes are not.
