The [[TrakEM2]] software has been published in [ PLoS ONE] <ref>{{cite journal|author=Albert Cardona, Stephan Saalfeld, Johannes Schindelin, Ignacio Arganda-Carreras, Stephan Preibisch, Mark Longair, Pavel Tomancak, Volker Hartenstein and Rodney J. Douglas|year=2012|title=TrakEM2 software for neural circuit reconstruction|journal=PLoS ONE|url=|doi=10.1371/journal.pone.0038011}}</ref>, establishing a primary reference for this program. [[TrakEM2]] started in 2005 when [ Albert Cardona ] worked for the whole Summer with [ Rodney J. Douglas] at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich, Switzerland, to establish an ImageJ-based program to aid in the reconstruction of neural circuits from large image volumes.
In its path, TrakEM2 fostered the development of software libraries for image registration, leading to the extraordinary work of [ Stephan Saalfeld] and [ Stephan Preibisch] at the lab of [ Pavel Tomancak] at MPI-CBG, Dresden. Albert Cardona's work on TraKEM2 contributed to the VIB libraries by Johannes Schindelin, Bene Schmid and Mark Longair, and in particular to the development of the [[3D Viewer]]<ref>{{cite journal|author=Benjamin Schmid , Johannes Schindelin , Albert Cardona , Mark Longair and Martin Heisenberg|title=A high-level 3D visualization API for Java and ImageJ|journal=BMC Bioinformatics|year=2010|volume=11|page=274|url=}}</ref> for the rendering of meshes and skeletons in 3D. The [[:Category:Scripting|scripting]] utilities now present in Fiji, and Fiji itself, spinned off from work in or related to TrakEM2.
