Cell tracking Tracking quality Optimal assignment Tracker selection Bayes theorem Automated cell segmentation and tracking can significantly increase the productivity of research in biology. In order to tune a tracking system for a particular video, researchers usually have to manually annotate a part of the video, and tune the algorithm with respect to this ground truth. However, large variability in cell video characteristics leads to different trackers and parameters being optimal for… CONTINUE READING
