Karyotype analysis is a widespread procedure in cytogenetics to assess the presence of genetic defects by the visualization of the structure of chromosomes. The procedure is lengthy and repetitive and an effective automatic analysis would greatly help the cytogeneticist routine work. Still, automatic segmentation and the full disentangling of chromosomes(More)
Human rhabdomyosarcoma RD cells express the myogenic regulatory factors MyoD and myogenin but differentiate spontaneously very poorly. Prolonged treatment of RD cells with the protein kinase C (PKC) activator 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) induces growth arrest and myogenic differentiation as shown by the accumulation of alpha-actin and myosin(More)
