Automated Cell Segmentation of Fission Yeast Phase Images - Segmenting Cells from Light Microscopy Images

Abstract

Robust image analysis is an important aspect of all cell biology studies. The geometrics of cells are critical for developing an understanding of biological processes. Time constraints placed on researchers lead to a narrower focus on what data are collected and recorded from an experiment, resulting in a loss of data. Currently, preprocessing of microscope images is followed by the utilisation and parameterisation of inbuilt functions of various softwares to obtain information. Using the fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyes pombe, we propose a novel, fully automated, segmentation software for cells with a significantly lower rate of segmentation errors than PombeX with the same dataset.
