Workflow steps
Step 1: Importing tracks into MATLAB
Step 2: Create and add data to the MSD analyzer
Step 3. Compute the mean-square displacement
Step 4. Log-log fit of the mean-square displacement
Step 5. Analysis of the log-log fitt
Description

Tracking tools, such as TrackMate, produce tracks and their role stops there. However, tracks are just an intermediate data structure in the workflow. Their subsequent analysis produces the numbers upon which scientific conclusions are made. The track analysis is most often specific to the scientific question to be addressed, and therefore tracking tools remain generic and seldom include specialized analysis modules. Another toolset is required for track analysis; this workflow focuses on using MATLAB.
