PMCID: 5100013
PMID: 27702994
DOI: 10.1093/jxb/erw350

[…] any manipulation of the root or pause in the growth monitoring. images were taken every 6min (supplementary fig. s2a). raw velocity profiles were obtained by particle image velocimetry, using kineroot (). the velocity profile along the root apex was interpolated with a cubic smoothing spline (smooth.spline, spar 0.5, ). the elemental elongation rate (eer) profile was calculated […]

DOI: 10.1093/jxb/erw320

[…] within the mature zone., analyses were performed using custom scripts and programs written in r and matlab (matlab r2011b, v7.13.0.564). particle image velocimetry analysis was carried out using kineroot software ()., the sensor allowed forces smaller than 10–3 n to be measured (). in biological experiments, it was operated for forces up to 0.05n. the use of a glass element […]

[…] (nikon, v1.3). shots were taken during at least 4–5h per root. raw velocity profiles were obtained by particle image velocimetry, from the monitoring of mark displacement along the root apex, using kineroot and the highest correlation coefficient search algorithm (, matlab r2011b, v7.13.0.564). depending on the root and on the time point, velocity profiles were either sigmoidal, bilinear, […]

DOI: 10.3732/apps.1300033

[…] currently, extracting quantitative data from time-lapse sequences involves user interpretation and manipulation of individual frames using software such as imagej ( or kineroot (), and there is a distinct need for tools to automate quantitative data extraction from high-resolution images ()., following the demonstrated success in the laboratory, the system […]

[…] set close to the root for calibration. after a 1 h rest, a series of pictures was taken at 10 min intervals under a 'safe' green light (switched on for 1 min every 10 min). the matlab-based software kineroot [] was used to track the displacement of graphite particles over space and time and determine the velocity (the local rate of longitudinal displacement due to growth of cells along […]
