[…] 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., the feature extraction step produces feature vectors with a total of 60 elements per data sample. the resulting high dimensional feature space might cause many machine […]

[…] 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 []., testes were dissected by removing the tunica, snap-frozen in a dry ice-ethanol bath, and stored at -80°c until rna isolation. rna was isolated […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] 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”., mice were anesthetized with carbon dioxide inhalation, perfused with 2% paraformaldehyde and 2.5% glutaraldehyde in pbs and then euthanized by excision of the heart. the perfused heart […]

[…] and electrically addressed with eutectic gallium–indium (egain)., 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 […]
