[…] we divided the volume into small overlapping subvolumes and applied focused proofreading () to revise the initial segmentation, which was tuned to be over-segmented. this protocol was executed in raveler (https://openwiki.janelia.org/wiki/display/flyem/raveler) and entails a series of yes/no merge decisions for adjacent segments where the segmentation classifier was uncertain. after focused […]

[…] were summed to generate isotropic 10 nm voxels., to obtain a dense reconstruction of seven medulla columns, we used a sequence of automated image processing followed by manual proofreading with raveler (https://openwiki.janelia.org/wiki/display/flyem/raveler). first, the medulla region of interest (roi) was identified, which contained seven medulla columns. the image set of the roi […]

[…] u895 4k camera (3.8 nm/pixel) using the leginon automated imaging software, resulting in a mosaic of overlapping images for each section. images were assembled using fiji with fine alignment using raveler software as described elsewhere. briefly, alignment points, both within overlapping images and between adjacent sections, were found by cross-correlation of image patches. a least-squares fit […]

[…] as proofreaders, whose work was supervised by two experienced electron microscopists (st, st2, pr) (experts). proofreaders and experts performed their tasks using a dedicated custom software tool, raveler (olbris et al., in preparation). in total, these proofreading steps took ~12,940 person-hours (including 900 person-hours contributed by our experts). there were five key steps within […]
