Tools for determining the spatial relationships

An important task for understanding how cells are organized is determining which components have spatial patterns that are related to each other. Read more


4d rtd

Pipeline for creation of spatiotemporal maps

Using a combination of diffeomorphic methods and improved cell segmentation, we developed a CellOrganizer pipeline for use in DPB4 to construct models of the 4D distributions of actin and 8 of its regulators during the response of T cells to antigen presentation. Read more



Development of models of cell and nuclear shape

We added a major new capability to our open source CellOrganizer system, the ability to construct diffeomorphic models of cell and nuclear shape. The models were developed because of the needs of DBP4... Read More
