Faas Software

Fly Activity Analysis Suite for Mac OSX

FaasX 32 bits is no longer supported and it is replaced by Faas as a 64 bits application compatible with MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) and above.

(FaasX is still downloadable for previous MacOS versions. < 10.14)

Faas is a MacOS (10.14 ->10.15 and above) 64-bits application that is closely related to BRP (Brandeis Rhythm Package, D.A. Wheeler) to process DAMSystem (Trikinetics) fly activity data and provides you a more convenient graphic interface.

It was developed by M. Boudinot at the Institut de Neurobiologie Alfred Fessard, CNRS, in the group Molecular Genetics of Circadian Rhythms of François Rouyer.

Faas is self sufficient and does not need any other software, but experiment description files that are needed by Faas can be more easily created using Microsoft Excel and the provided Experiment template.

Features

Faas allows to run batch analysis with tabulated text and graphical rendering on circadian activity collected by DAMSystem such as :

• cartesian and double plot of daily activity (Actogram).

• average activity at each time interval throughout an entrained circadian cycle (Eduction).

• period analysis periodogram :

• Periodogram (Cycle_p)

• Autocorrelogram (Autocorrelation)

• MESA power spectrum (MESA)

• phase analysis (Phase).

Faas installation kits :

Faas_Kit.zip - Kit version : 1.1 (64-bits)

FaasX_Kit.zip- Kit version : 1.22 (32-bits). No more supported!

The provided data set can be used to test your installation and gives you example of files that are needed to run Faas.

Old version

FaasX is a MacOSX (10.4 ->10.14 and above) universal application that is closely related to BRP (Brandeis Rhythm Package, D.A. Wheeler) to process DAMSystem (Trikinetics) fly activity data and provides you a more convenient graphic interface.
It was developed by M. Boudinot at the Institut de Neurobiologie Alfred Fessard, CNRS, in the group Molecular Genetics of Circadian Rhythms of François Rouyer.

FaasX is self sufficient and does not need any other software, but experiment description files that are needed by FaasX can be more easily created using Microsoft Excel and the provided Experiment template with the help of the corresponding applescript makeFaasXFiles application.

Features

FaasX allows to run batch analysis on circadian activity collected by DAMSystem such as :
• circadian and double plot of daily activity (Actogram).
• tabulated average activity for entrainment data with graphical rendering (Eduction)
• period analysis periodogram with tabulated text and graphical results :

• Periodogram (Cycle_p)
• Autocorrelogram (Autocorrelation)
• MESA power spectrum (MESA)
• phase analysis (Phase).
