TRiP is a matlab-based program for estimating circadian period from whole plant image data. TRiP includes a grid-based cropping function that takes each image stack as input and crops the images using grid coordinates to output image stacks for each plant. A motion estimation algorithm is applied to the image stacks and outputs a motion vector for each image over time. The motion vectors are used to estimate circadian period using a single frequency FFT-NLLS method.
