# Datasets#

Here we provide a number of sample and benchmark datasets that can be used for experimenting with or extending SLEAP.

These datasets are all saved as .pkg.slp files, which are self-contained SLEAP labels together with embedded image data. See Data structures for examples on how to work with SLEAP files.

For the full set of labeled datasets and trained models reported in the SLEAP paper (Pereira et al., Nature Methods, 2022), please see the OSF repository.

## fly32#

Name fly32 Animal-centered movies of single fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) freely moving in an enclosed circular arena with backlight. Videos were recorded with a camera that followed animal, so all images are roughly centered. 59 192 x 192 x 1 100 35 px / mm 32 nodes 1 ✘ 1500 Berman et al. (2014), Pereira et al.

## flies13#

Name flies13 Freely interacting pairs of virgin male and female fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster, NM91 strain) 3 to 5 days post-eclosion. Animals frequently engage in courtship behavior. 30 1024 x 1024 x 1 150 30.3 px / mm 13 nodes 2 ✔ 2000 frames, 4000 instances Pereira et al.

## mice_of#

Name mice_of Freely moving C57BL/6J mice (Mus musculus) in 45.7 x 45.7 cm open field arena with a clear acrylic floor, imaged from below to ensure paw visibility. 20 1280 x 1024 x 1 80 1.97 px / mm 11 nodes 1-5 ✘ 1000 frames, 2950 instances Pereira et al. (2022), John D’Uva, Mikhail Kislin, Samuel S.-H. Wang

## mice_hc#

Name mice_hc Pairs of male and female white Swiss Webster mice (Mus musuculus) imaged in a home cage environment with lightly-colored bedding, imaged from above. Animals are fairly low contrast with respect to the background. 40 1280 x 1024 x 1 40 1.9 px / mm 5 nodes 2 ✘ 1474 frames, 2948 instances Pereira et al.
