[…] dancy between moments is maximally reduced. Zernike moments have been favorably used as shape descriptors for cell images [, , ]. Here, we calculated twenty-five Zernike moments using the approach of Mahotas [] with degree = 8. […]


UXT is required for spermatogenesis in mice

PLoS One
PMCID: 5896988
PMID: 29649254
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195747

[…] rlapping fields from one tissue section at 20x magnification, counting between 400 and 2600 total nuclei per biological replicate. The following python packages were used for the analysis: OpenCV [], mahotas [], scikit-image [], and scikit learn []. […]


Development of image analysis software for quantification of viable cells in microchips

PLoS One
PMCID: 5832319
PMID: 29494694
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193605

[…] lysis software developed in this work that allows to deal with these issues was created using Python, for which there are many image processing libraries available. The following libraries were used: Mahotas [], Matplotlib [] and NumPy [].In perfectly focused images of cells under a light microscope, the membrane is a well visible, dark line while everything inside the cell has nearly the same sha […]


Machine Learning for Nuclear Mechano Morphometric Biomarkers in Cancer Diagnosis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5738417
PMID: 29263424
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-17858-1

[…] Tensorflow and trained on an NVIDIA Titan X Pascal 12GB GPU. Our logistic regression model was implemented in python using scikit-learn and feature extraction for the linear model was done using the mahotas python library. Image segmentation on an NVIDIA Titan X Pascal 12GB GPU took roughly 0.5 seconds per 512 × 512 image containing several nuclei. As an example, training our CNN for classifying […]


Plakophilin 2 is required for transcription of genes that control calcium cycling and cardiac rhythm

Nat Commun

PMID: 28740174
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00127-0

[…] icles” in ImageJ. Distances between clusters were obtained using the ImageJ function “Analyze particles” and a script written in Python that utilized the image processing packages “scikit-image” and “mahotas”. […]


Graphene–Metal Composite Sensors with Near Zero Temperature Coefficient of Resistance

PMCID: 5331455
PMID: 28261691
DOI: 10.1021/acsomega.7b00044

[…] An object-oriented Python code was developed to perform image analysis of the SEM images. This code made extensive use of the Mahotas package (see Supporting Information) to distinguish the metal from graphene, identify separate nanoislands, and quantify the area of the individual nanoislands as well as their fractional cove […]
