together act as fiducial markers to approximate the coiled embryo’s posture, serving as a frame of reference to track cells of various tissues during late-stage embryogenesis [10]. Current approaches to posture identification rely on time-consuming manual efforts by trained users which limits the efficiency of subsequent cell tracking. EHGM with biologically inspired hypergraphical models identifies posture more accurately than established point-set matching methods, correctly identifying twice as…

A Semi-automatic Cell Tracking Process Towards Completing the 4D Atlas of C. elegans Development

Results on images depicting aforementioned muscle cell nuclei across three test embryos suggest the fiducial markers in conjunction with a classic tracking paradigm overcome sporadic twitching.

Multiple Hypothesis Hypergraph Tracking for Posture Identification in Embryonic Caenorhabditis elegans

MHHT is developed and applied to track the posture of the embryo throughout the last hours of development and more accurately track posture on a held-out test embryo than methods which treat the cells as independently moving objects.



Automated cell lineage tracing in Caenorhabditis elegans.

A system for automated cell lineage tracing during C. elegans embryogenesis, based on 3D, time-lapse imaging and automated image analysis, that envision that this automation will make it practical to systematically decipher the developmental genes and pathways encoded in the genome of C. aristans.

AceTree: a tool for visual analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans embryogenesis

A companion software package, AceTree, is developed, which links the images and the annotations using tree representations of the cell lineage of Caenorhabditis elegans to facilitate curation and editing of the lineage.

Untwisting the Caenorhabditis elegans embryo
