High-resolution medical images from advanced instruments provide rich information about morphological and functional characteristics of biological systems. However, most of the information available in biomedical images remains underutilized in research projects. In this paper, we discuss the requirements and design of system support for composing, executing, and exploring in silico experiments involving microscopy images. This framework aims to provide building blocks for large scale, high-performance analytical image exploration systems, through rich metadata models, comprehensive query and data access capabilities, and efficient database and HPC support.
