QuickFit 3

Description

QuickFit 3 is a data evaluation software for FCS Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy and imagingFCS (imFCS) measurements, developed in the group B040 (Prof. Jörg Langowski) at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Actually QuickFit 3 itself is a project manager and all functionality is added as plugins. A set of tested plugins for FCS, imagingFCS and some microscopy-related image processing tasks is supplied together with the software.

Napari image viewer

Description

napari is a fast, interactive, multi-dimensional image viewer for Python. It’s designed for browsing, annotating, and analyzing large multi-dimensional images. It’s built on top of Qt (for the GUI), vispy (for performant GPU-based rendering), and the scientific Python stack (e.g. numpyscipy). It includes critical viewer features out-of-the-box, such as support for large multi-dimensional data, and layering and annotation. By integrating closely with the Python ecosystem, napari can be easily coupled to leading machine learning and image analysis tools (e.g. scikit-imagescikit-learnTensorFlowPyTorch), enabling more user-friendly automated analysis.

FastSME

Description

FastSME: Faster and Smoother Manifold Extraction From 3D Stack.

3D image stacks are routinely acquired to capture data that lie on undulating 3D manifolds yet processed in 2D by biologists. Algorithms to reconstruct the specimen morphology into a 2D representation from the 3D image volume are employed in such scenarios. In this paper, we present FastSME, which offers several improvements on the baseline SME algorithm which enables accurate 2D representation of data on a manifold from 3D volumes, however is computationally expensive. The improvements are achieved in terms of processing speed (3X-10X speed-up depending on image size), minimizing sensitivity to initialization, and also increases local smoothness of the recovered manifold resulting in better reconstructed 2D composite image. We compare the proposed FastSME against the baseline SME as well as other accessible state-of-the-art tools on synthetic and real microscopy data. Our evaluation on multiple metrics demonstrates the efficiency of the presented method in maintaining fidelity of manifold shape and hence specimen morphology.

DeepCell

Description

 

DeepCell is neural network library for single cell analysis, written in Python and built using TensorFlow and Keras.

DeepCell aids in biological analysis by automatically segmenting and classifying cells in optical microscopy images. This framework consumes raw images and provides uniquely annotated files as an output.

The jupyter session in the read docs are broken, but the one from the GitHub are functional (see usage example )

CellProfiler Analyst CPA

Description

CellProfiler Analyst (CPA) allows interactive exploration and analysis of data, particularly from high-throughput, image-based experiments. Included is a supervised machine learning system which can be trained to recognize complicated and subtle phenotypes, for automatic scoring of millions of cells. CPA provides tools for exploring and analyzing multidimensional data, particularly data from high-throughput, image-based experiments analyzed by its companion image analysis software, CellProfiler.

YeastSpotter

Description

Code to segment yeast cells using a pre-trained mask-rcnn model. We've tested this with yeast cells imaged in fluorescent images and brightfield images, and gotten good results with both modalities. This code implements an user-friendly script that hides all of the messy implementation details and parameters. Simply put all of your images to be segmented into the same directory, and then plug and go.
