Curve extraction plugin

Brief intro About a year ago me and Jalmar were working on the automated methods of line/curve extraction from images (mostly microtubules in microscopy pictures, but not limited to). There are a lot of different methods, but after some research we concluded that one of the basic and “essential baseline control” was Carsten Steger’s “An…

Multiscale Trend Analysis code

In many areas of science (sociology, intracellular transport, stock exchange, climatology, etc) there is a need to decompose observed noisy time series into a set of piecewise linear trends. Let me show a typical example data that I’ve generated myself: Alternative to linear trends analysis method is Fourier transform (for example). But it assumes that…

Particle tracking plugins file formats and converter

Recently I’ve  been working on projects involving heavy usage of particle tracking. There are many available solutions to do that, but since I’m a big fan of ImageJ/FIJI, I’m sticking to it. Among multiple plugins for tracking there are two best options (in my opinion): TrackMate for the automatic tracking and MTrackJ for the manual…

Why another kymograph ImageJ plugin?

Kymograph is a useful tool to transform a movie containing particles movement into a single picture/figure. It is convenient when analyzing vesicles movement in cells, axons/dendrites of neurons, cars movement on roads. It shows particles’ speed, direction, intensity, etc.  What it does is just plotting how intensity is changing over time along some line or curve. Ideally software that makes kymograph…
