Cell segmentation


While a quickly retrained cellpose network (only on xy slices, no need to train on xz or yz slices) is giving good results in 2D, the anisotropy of the SIM image prevents its usage in 3D. Here the workflow consists in applying 2D cellpose segmentation and then using the CellStich libraries to optimize the 3D labelling of objects from the 2D independant labels.

Here the provided notebook is fully compatible with Google Collab and can be run by uploading your own images to your gdrive. A model is provided to be replaced by your own (create by CellPose 2.0)

CellStich proposes a set of tools for 3D segmentation from 2D segmentation: it reassembles 2D labels obtained from cell in slices in unique 3D labels across slices. It isparticularly robust to anisotropy, and is the ideal companion to cellpose 2D models or other 2D deep learning based models. One could also think about using it for cell tracking by overlap (using time as a third dimension).


SuperDSM is a globally optimal segmentation method based on superadditivity and deformable shape models for cell nuclei in fluorescence microscopy images and beyond.


btrack is a Python library for multi object tracking, used to reconstruct trajectories in crowded fields. btrack implemented a residual U-Net model coupledd with a classification CNN to allow accurate instance segmentation of the cell nuclei. To track the cells over time and through cell divisions, btrack developed a Bayesian cell tracking methodology that uses input features from the images to enable the retrieval of multi-generational lineage information from a corpus of thousands of hours of live-cell imaging data.
