Mytoe is a software for analyzing mitochondrial dynamics from fluorescence microscope images. The program can be used for the analysis of spatial properties of the mitochondrial structure, as well as the motion of mitochondria. Mytoe is implemented in MATLAB. In addition to the source code, a standalone Windows version is available, which does not require a MATLAB installation.
