2014-01-25 - MosaicSuite for Fiji
One of the main missions of the Fiji project is to bring advanced computer vision algorithms into the hands of biologists. For that to happen it is necessary that computer vision researchers contribute their algorithms and plugins to the platform.
This process has started and one example is the MosaicSuite of image processing algorithms developed by the MOSAIC group headed by Ivo Sbalzarini at MPI-CBG in Dresden. The suite includes tools for segmentation, particle tracking and more. Some of the algorithms are described in this paper:
Shivanandan, A., Radenovic A., Sbalzarini I. F. MosaicIA: an ImageJ/Fiji plugin for spatial pattern and interaction analysis BMC Bioinformatics, 14, pp. 1-10, (2013)
The plugins are available in Fiji through a dedicated update site.
We are looking forward to more contributions from the MOSAIC group in the future.
