Motility analysis with mean-square displacement
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.
