Cell Segmentation Using Deep Learning and Nearest Neighbor Analysis

Cells segmented using STARDIST Deep learning, within QuPath software.

Dr. Arne Seitz

Our goal is to provide instruments and more importantly expertise to solve challenging (biological) questions with modern light-microscopy. Therefore the BIOP seeks to create a link between life sciences and engineering to investigate jointly these fundamental fields.
