Workflow

A workflow is a set of components assembled in some specific order to

  1. Measure and estimate some numerical parameters of the biological system or
  2. Visualization

for addressing a biological question. Workflows can be a combination of components from the same or different software packages using several scripts and manual steps.

Description

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)

Description

This workflow describes a deep-learning based pipeline for reliable single-organoid segmentation and tracking in 2D+t high-resolution brightfield microscopy of mouse mammary epithelial organoids. The pipeline involves a four-layer U-Net to infer semantic segmentation predictions, adaptive morphological filtering to establish candidate organoid instances, and a shape-similarity-constrained, instance-segmentation-correcting tracking step to associate the corresponding organoid instances in time.

It is particularly focused on automatically detecting an organoid located approximately in the center of the first frame and track all its subsequent instances in the remaining frames, emphasizing on accurate organoid boundary delineation. Furthermore, segmentation network was trained using plausible pix2pixHD-generated bioimage data. Syntheric image simulator code and data are also available here.

GPU Accelerated Image Processing with CLIJ2

The NEUBIAS Academy at home about CLIJ2 gives an introduction to accelerated image processing using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) in ImageJ/Fiji. Core concepts are explained as well as usage of the tools with the ImageJ Macro recorder and auto-completion in Fijis script editor. Furthermore, an outlook is provided of how the CLIJ project will develop in the coming years to provide long-term maintained access to GPU-acceleration in the Bio-Image Analysis context.
