More than 100 copper/zinc superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) genetic mutations have been characterized. These mutations lead to the death of motor neurons in ALS. In its native form, the SOD1 protein is expressed as a homodimer in the cytosol. In vitro studies have shown that SOD1 mutations impair the dimerization kinetics of the protein, and in vivo studies(More)
MOTIVATION High-throughput screening (HTS) is an important method in drug discovery in which the activities of a large number of candidate chemicals or genetic materials are rapidly evaluated. Data are usually obtained by measurements on samples in microwell plates and are often subjected to artefacts that can bias the result selection. We report here a(More)
MOTIVATION High-throughput screening is a powerful technology principally used by pharmaceutical industries allowing the identification of molecules of interest within large libraries. Originally target based, cellular assays provide a way to test compounds (or other biological material such as small interfering RNA) in a more physiologically realistic in(More)
Advances in automated imaging microscopy allow fast acquisitions of multidimensional biological samples. Those microscopes open new possibilities for analyzing subcellular structures and spatial cellular arrangements. In this article, the authors describe a 3D image analysis framework adapted to medium-throughput screening. Upon adaptive and regularized(More)
In this paper we present a new framework for correcting partially out-of-focus biological images. To evaluate depth variation , our method extracts similar objects of interest over the image. The depth is based on a defocus value computation for each salient point. We use an iterative algorithm to convert each defocus value into a Gaussian standard(More)
