mRNP granules at adult central synapses are postulated to regulate local mRNA translation and synapse plasticity. However, they are very poorly characterized in vivo. Here, in Drosophila olfactory synapses, we present early observations and characterization of candidate synaptic mRNP particles, one of which contains a widely conserved, DEAD-box helicase,(More)
In confocal microscopy imaging, the target objects are labeled with fluorescent markers in the living specimen, and usually appear as spots in the observed images. Spot detection and analysis is an important task for the biological studies from the observed images. However, while the spots have irregular sizes and positions due to the variant amount of(More)
In confocal microscopy imaging, target objects are labeled with fluorescent markers in the living specimen, and usually appear as spots in the observed images. Spot detection and analysis is therefore an important task but it is still heavily reliant on manual analysis. In this paper, a novel shape modeling algorithm is proposed for automating the detection(More)
Active contours are well known for object segmentation and widely adopted in various forms for biological image analysis. Most of the techniques are commonly based on object geometry but overlapping regions cause severe problems to contour propagation. In this paper, we propose a novel active contour technique (" cellsnake ") for solving this problem with(More)
In confocal microscopy, target objects are labeled with fluorescent markers in the living specimen, and usually appear with irregular brightness in the observed images. Also, due to the existence of out-of-focus objects in the image, the segmentation of 3-D objects in the stack of image slices captured at different depth levels of the specimen is still(More)
