  • The rapidly evolving field of biological imaging has seen the recent advent of several technologies that yield three-dimensional images of cells, tissues, organs and organisms. As a result, huge volumes of image data are now routinely produced. Automatized tools are hence required to help users process and analyze efficiently their data. Image segmentation is a key step that is both difficult and time-consuming if performed manually. Unfortunately, fully automatic segmentation approaches… CONTINUE READING
