Cell tracking software tools | Laser scanning microscopy image analysis

Cell motility is a critical part of many important biological processes. Automated and sensitive cell tracking is essential to cell motility studies where the tracking results can be used for diagnostic or curative decisions and where mathematical models can be developed to deepen our understanding of the mechanisms underlying cell motility.

Analyzes, processes and visualizes multi-dimensional microscopy images. BioImageXD puts open-source computer science tools for three-dimensional visualization and analysis into the hands of all researchers, through a user-friendly graphical interface tuned to the needs of biologists. BioImageXD has no restrictive licenses or undisclosed algorithms and enables publication of precise, reproducible and modifiable workflows. It allows simple construction of processing pipelines and should enable biologists to perform challenging analyses of complex processes.
A tool for segmentation, fluorescence quantification, and tracking of cells on microscopy images. CellX decodes the information across the cell membrane and guarantees optimal detection of the cell boundaries on a per-cell basis. Graph cuts account for the information of the cell boundaries through directional cross-correlations, and they automatically incorporate spatial constraints. The method accurately segments images of various cell types grown in dense cultures that are acquired with different microscopy techniques.
Provides general purpose functionality for reading, writing, processing and analysis of images. In the context of microscopy-based cellular assays, EBImage offers tools to segment cells and extract quantitative cellular descriptors. This allows the automation of such tasks using the R programming language and use of existing tools in the R environment for signal processing, statistical modeling, machine learning and data visualization. It uses ImageMagick to read and save images, and supports more than 80 image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, TGA, GIF and PNG. EBImage also supports standard geometric transformations such as rotation, reflection, cropping, translation and resizing. Classical image processing tools are available: linear filtering, morphological erosion and dilation, fast distance map computation, contour delineation and area filling.
Studies cell movement by adopting deep reinforcement learning approaches within an agent-based modeling framework. drl4cellmovement captures the main aspects of cell movement and provides an idea that represents cell behaviors with neural networks trained by deep reinforcement. The software can learn a cell’s optimal path under certain regulatory mechanisms, and can thus examine hypotheses by comparing the similarities between the simulation cell migration paths and the observation data. It was tested through two representative scenarios during C. elegans embryogenesis.
TASI / Temporal Analysis of Spheroid Imaging
Aids users to quantify tumor spheroid dynamics. TASI is a program that allows investigators to: segment spheroid images, extract features describing their shape, growth, and perform mathematical modeling and statistical analyses of these features. These functionalities permits users to compare treatment and control populations of spheroids. This tool can be used for studying lung cancer spheroids and discriminating different invasive phenotypes.
A simple, user-friendly tool for interactive image classification, segmentation and analysis. It is built as a modular software framework, which currently has workflows for automated (supervised) pixel- and object-level classification, automated and semi-automated object tracking, semi-automated segmentation and object counting without detection. Most analysis operations are performed lazily, which enables targeted interactive processing of data subvolumes, followed by complete volume analysis in offline batch mode.
TRAgen / Track generator
Generates 2D image sequences that show simulated living cell populations. TRAgen creates GT-enabled image sequences with vast amounts of cells highlithing several tracking events, such as cells moving and changing shape, cells having contact and overlapping, and cells splitting due to cell division. It is primarily designed to operate at inter-cellular scope, and works with 2D masks of all common biomedical shapes, including those of nuclei and cells themselves.
TLA / Time Lapse Analyser
A free, cross-platform, open source software for high throughput time-lapse data processing for live cell imaging. TLA is a graphical tool which enables easy access to high-throughput live cell imaging for every user, regardless of the individual expertise. Beginners can easily process stacks of time-lapse data by loading an appropriate image processing setup and time-lapse evaluation setup. Advanced users can modify existing setups, or create new setups which suit their need and special experimental conditions.
It is based on the MultiTracker plugin by Jeffrey Kuhn which is based on the Object tracker plugin by Wayne Rasband. In contrast to the Multitracker plugin, the number of objects may vary between successive frames (objects may appear or disappear). Mtrack2 will identify the objects in each frame, and then determine which objects in successive frames are closest together. If these are within a user-defined distance (the maximum velocity of the objects) they are assembled into tracks. When multiple objects are within the distance determined by the maximum velocity, the closest object is selected and the object is flagged in the output.
Amira 3D Software for Life Sciences
Allows users to visualize, manipulate, and understand data from imaging modalities such as computed tomography, microscopy or Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Amira 3D Software for Life Sciences provides features to import and process 2D and 3D images data, visualization techniques and tools for visual analysis. Users can also create and share presentations. The base product can be customized by adding functional extensions to fit special needs in different application areas.
