An interview with Estibaliz Gómez de Mariscal

Posted by , on 27 February 2024

At the end of 2023, DL4MicEverywhere was released. The platform aims to make deep learning methods in bioimage analysis more accessible and more reproducible. We caught up with Estibaliz Gómez de Mariscal (Esti), one of the co-leads of the project, to find out more about the platform, and to chat about Esti’s career so far

Will your algorithm be the best for this new image data challenge?

Posted by , on 26 February 2024

In order to answer image data analysis demands, France-BioImaging is launching its first data machine learning competition: welcome to the Light My Cells challenge! The Light My Cells challenge aims at contributing to the development of new image-to-image ‘deep-label’ methods in the fields of biology and microscopy. Basically, the goal is to predict the best-focused output-images of several organelles
