Description

This python toolbox performs registration between 2-D microscopy images from the same tissue section or serial sections in several ways to achieve imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) experimental goals.

This code supports the following works and enables others to perform the workflows outlined in the following works, please cite them if you use this toolbox:

  • Advanced Registration and Analysis of MALDI Imaging Mass Spectrometry Measurements through Autofluorescence Microscopy10.1021/acs.analchem.8b02884

  • Next Generation Histology-directed Imaging Mass Spectrometry Driven by Autofluorescence Microscopy10.1021/acs.analchem.8b02885

Description

Quantitative Criterion Acquisition Network (QCA Net) performs instance segmentation of 3D fluorescence microscopic images. QCA Net consists of Nuclear Segmentation Network (NSN) that learned nuclear segmentation task and Nuclear Detection Network (NDN) that learned nuclear identification task. QCA Net performs instance segmentation of the time-series 3D fluorescence microscopic images at each time point, and the quantitative criteria for mouse development are extracted from the acquired time-series segmentation image. The detailed information on this program is described in our manuscript posted on bioRxiv.

Description

idTracker is a videotracking software that keeps the correct identity of each individual during the whole video. It works for many animal species including mice, insects (Drosophila, ants) and fish (zebrafish, medaka, stickleback). idTracker distinguishes animals even when humans cannot, such as for size-matched siblings, and reidentifies animals after they temporarily disappear from view or across different videos. It is robust, easy to use and general. Technique details and analyses of several applications are described in Pérez-Escudero et al (2014).
