 # Locomotion of Drosophila melanogaster larvae in the absence of any experimental stimuli
 
 ## Summary
-Groups of ~ 20 naive Drosophila melanogaster larvae (Canton S) were placed on agarose-filled Petri dishes of 15 cm diameter with no particular stimuli. Their behaviour was recorded from above for 3 min with 16 frames/s and tracked as described in [Paisios et al. 2017](https://doi.org/10.1101/lm.045). This data set contains 31 experiments and approx. 600 animals in total. For each experiment, it features a video with the recorded larvae, standardized meta data and individual csv files for each tracked animal. The provided data can be used to analyze basic locomotion and behaviour of Drosophila larvae, and to benchmark video-analysis tools.

 ## Structure
 Each individual experiment is saved in a separate folder with standardized names featuring the internal name of the used setup, the date and the time of the experiment. In the folder, individual csv files feature the information of tracked animals. Each csv-file has 78 coloumns and as many lines as there are frames recorded for the animal. 
-Coloumn 0 is representing the number of the frame.
+Coloumn 0 is representing the current frame.
 Coloumns 1-24 are the locations of the 12 spine points from rear to front (where the odds are x and even are y coordinates)
-Coloumns 25-69 are the xa nd y coordinates of 22 contour points of the larva
+Coloumns 25-69 are the x and y coordinates of 22 contour points of the larva
 Coloumn 70 and 71 are the x and y coordinates of the center
 Coloumn 72 is the perimeter of the larva
 Coloumn 73 is the area of the larva
