Fluorescence microscopy, such as light-sheet-based fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) allows to acquire three dimensional biological specimen with high spatio-temporal resolution. However, the image data amount is drastically increased which demands for automated methods in order to extract meaningful quantitative information. As a bioinformatician, I develop tools intended to obtain quantitative data from LSFM image data.I focus on the development and application of task-dependent image segmentation and algorithms for object identification and tracking.
