Detecting Virulent Cells of Cryptococcus Neoformans Yeast: Clustering Experiments

Abstract

The yeast cryptococcus neoformans can cause dangerous infections such as meningitis. The presence of a thick capsule is shown to be correlated with virulence of a yeast cell. This paper reports on our approach towards developing a classifier for detecting virulent cells in images. We present our methods for creating samples, collecting images, preprocessing… (More)
