Description: 

Semi-automatic tracking and quantification of fluorescence intensity at cell boundary of single migrating cells. 4 functions are packaged in one:

  • BOA: Segmentation and tracking of cell migration based on active contour (snake)
  • ECMM: Dynamic mapping of moving contour.
  • ANA: Measurement of fluorescence dynamics along cell membrane
  • Q: Time-space plots (kymograph) of
    • convexity
    • fluorescence
    • membrane speed
    • and more...

In addition it provides tools for DIC image processing, Random Walks segmentation and protrusion tracking. Currently it is moving towards a more general purpose tool for studying transmembrane signalling.
