Image processing for biological microscopy – extracting features from live cell & tissue images.

This lecture will describe the challenges, opportunities and approaches of extracting feature data from live cell and organelle microscopy images. Topics will include imaging modalities, optimal adaptive thresholding as a statistical decision problem, partitioning connected components of voxels into objects, and multi-target tracking. The talk will touch briefly on the available open-source tools. Intended audience is biologists, computational scientists, and engineers. A number of examples from cancer biology, development neurobiology and immunology will be presented as movies and interactive software applications. There are no prerequisites.

To be followed by a drinks reception. Free registration is recommended.
