Extending TrackMate
TrackMate can be extended with new modules covering about everything it does, thanks to several nice features of SciJava. These tutorials explain how to do so. They are best read in order.


Introduction.

This last part on particle-linking modules concludes the series of tutorials on extending TrackMate. The most difficult modules to create are spot detectors, which was the subject of the previous tutorial. Particle-linking modules, or trackers, are a little bit less complicated.

However, you still need to understand how we store and manipulate links in TrackMate, and this implies very briefly introducing mathematical graphs.

Simple, undirected graphs.
