The bioimage processing community has, since its inception, worked on extracting quantitative information from microscopy images of cultured cell
biology is developing a great hunger for robust and accurate automated cell tracking (Meijering et al. 2009, Kanade et al. 2011, Meijering et al. 2012, Gonzalez et al. 2013, Ma ´ ska et al. 2014)
Cell migration and proliferation are two important processes in normal tissue development and disease.
To visualize these processes, optical microscopy remains the most appropriate imaging modality. Some imaging techniques, such as phase contrast (PhC) or differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy make cells visible without the need of exogenous markers. Fluorescence microscopy on the other hand requires internalized, transgenic, or transfected fluorescent reporters to specifically label cell components such as nuclei, cytoplasm, or membranes
What it does
a prototype to a future workflow for analyzing fluorescence microscopy.
