The goal of the project is to develop visualization and segmentation methods for subcellular structures. The project is a collaboration with Institute of Cell Biology at Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana.
Current research of living cells is focused on their sub-cellular components -- organelles and their functions. A novel focused ion beam microscopy (FIB) technique provides volumetric data with a resolution which is high enough to obtain such information. We want to leverage existing methods from the field of medical image segmentation to aid research of cellular structure with an algorithm for automatic segmentation of cell volumetric FIB data.
