All things unequal – live microscopy reveals asymmetric RNA localization in the early mammalian embryo

Posted by , on 4 September 2023

Authors: Jennifer Zenker1,*, Julian Heng2 1Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University, Clayton, Australia 2Remotely Consulting, Perth, Australia *Corresponding author Non-mammalian systems have been invaluable for us to decipher evolutionarily-conserved processes, orthologous molecules and cellular phenomena underlying early embryo development. One fundamental discovery from the work on non-mammalian

Tracking in napari

Posted by , on 1 June 2023

In this blog post we are exploring cell tracking in napari. Two important processes in normal tissue development and disease are cell migration and proliferation. To gain a better understanding on these processes, tracking in time-lapse datasets is needed. By measuring track properties, like velocity and the total travelled distance, spatio-temporal relationships can be studied.

Feature extraction in napari

Posted by , on 3 May 2023

This blog post revolves around extracting and selecting features from segmented images. We will define the terms feature extraction and selection. Also, we will learn how to categorize features and can look up specific features in a glossary. Furthermore, we will explore how to extract features in napari. Definition of feature extraction During feature extraction,

Annotating 3D images in napari

Posted by , on 30 March 2023

This blog post revolves around generating ground truth in 3D images for segmentation. Therefore, we will define what ground truth is and how we can generate it using napari in a time-efficient way. We will also learn about difficulties of annotating alone or in groups and address possible solutions for both. Challenges of image segmentation

Rescaling images and pixel (an)isotropy

Posted by , on 2 March 2023

This blog post shows the importance of rescaling 3D image data and what anisotropy of pixels/voxels has to do with it. We will see which different options exist to rescale an image as well as their advantages and limitations. We will also apply a commonly used segmentation algorithm, Voronoi-Otsu-Labeling, on the original and the rescaled

VollSeg and its extension Napari plugins

Posted by , on 15 January 2023

In this article we present the Napari plugin VollSeg and its ongoing extension plugins that we are creating as a part of the CZI grant awarded successively to the non-profit company KapoorLabs, Paris. VollSeg is a Napari plugin for performing semantic, instance segmentation and denoising using the seed pooling approach that requires StarDist and either
