Image Processing and Analysis in Microscopy Applications

The automated analysis of microscopy images of soil samples, root, etc. containing nematodes is the general goal of this project.

Image mosaicing.

In the usual laboratory work, analysis of a sample image captured with the microscope can take 15 minutes to several hours, depending on their complexity, composition, etc. The goal of developing a semiautomatic digital tool is to free the researcher from repetitive tasks reducing the time spent by a human user per image to less than 1 minute.

Over the years, the research has been focused on modeling the nematode shape in a way that can be coupled with the image content.
