This program is part of the Xenocall project. Researchers observed that the amount and duration of calls of the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) change when exposed to hormonal effective substances. The Xenocall project checks whether this effect can be used as an endpoint in animal tests instead of dissecting animals after the experiments.

An experiment for one substance may produce about 100 hours of audio recordings. It is a very tedious and error-prone work to examine this amount of data visually or by listening. The purpose of this program is to examine the recordings automatically and generate tables with basic statistical parameters.
