The rumen microbiome: an underexplored resource for novel antimicrobial discovery

PMCID: 5711939
PMID: 29214045
DOI: 10.1038/s41522-017-0042-1

[…] luorescence readings (excitation/emission spectra of 560/590 nm) after the addition of resazurin dye (100 µm final concentration). The results from the screen were analysed using the MATLAB extension Gait-CAD as previously described. Concentration values with a 75% reduction of luminescence or fluorescence (IC75) in relation to untreated controls were computed. Three peptide activity classes: acti […]


Fuzzy based propagation of prior knowledge to improve large scale image analysis pipelines

PLoS One
PMCID: 5667823
PMID: 29095927
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0187535
call_split See protocol

[…] ect correspondences of detected objects over time in all acquired images. For illustration purposes, a straightforward nearest-neighbor tracking approach implemented in the open-source MATLAB toolbox SciXMiner was used [, ]. Each object present in a frame was associated with the spatially closest object in the subsequent frame. This procedure was applied to every frame of the data set in order to […]


A New Feedback Based Method for Parameter Adaptation in Image Processing Routines

PLoS One
PMCID: 5072585
PMID: 27764213
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0165180

[…] A benchmark data set ( is specifically designed to conform to evaluation criteria that are most suitable for our methodology. A complete description of data set is given in []. It […]


Zebrafish biosensor for toxicant induced muscle hyperactivity

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4815012
PMID: 27029555
DOI: 10.1038/srep23768
call_split See protocol

[…] andard deviation of intensity values were extracted from the linearized and cropped original image. All algorithms were implemented in MATLAB as an extension package to the open-source MATLAB toolbox Gait-CAD. To evaluate whether there is an effect of a test chemical on the hspb11 reporter level, the differences of the hspb11 reporter level among doses including solvent control were examined by on […]


A Benchmark Data Set to Evaluate the Illumination Robustness of Image Processing Algorithms for Object Segmentation and Classification

PLoS One
PMCID: 4508044
PMID: 26191792
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0131098

[…] egarding accuracy and robustness. The sources for the image processing routine, the robustness measures and the data set as well are freely available and downloadable […]


Phenotype Classification of Zebrafish Embryos by Supervised Learning

PLoS One
PMCID: 4289190
PMID: 25574849
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0116989

[…] entrations using images of treated embryos by extracting image features (e.g. variance of pixel values) to distinguish two very obvious classes, dead or alive embryos. Classification using the Matlab Gait-CAD toolbox was shown to be in good correlation with that from experts [], however more complex defects were not addressed. Another work describes a way to automatically obtain images of zebrafis […]
