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).


ELEPHANT is a platform for 3D cell tracking, based on incremental and interactive deep learning.
It implements a client-server architecture. The server is built as a web application that serves deep learning-based algorithms. The client application is implemented by extending Mastodon, providing a user interface for annotation, proofreading and visualization.
