The Image Analysis Group is concerned with advanced analysis of biological imagery. The main thrust of research is to develop novel techniques for automatically extracting high-level information from the full range of images generated by the biologists. Current research is focused on two main areas of biological research: the effects of retinal detachment and microtubule dynamics. The retina group is working on algorithms for automated cell counting, layer segmentation, texture analysis, and a host of other quantifiers. The microtubule group is working on techniques for tracking microtubules as well as analyzing microtubule dynamics.
