Title: Classifier-based cell segmentation from confocal microscopy images
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: In vivo observation and tracking of cell division in theArabidopsis thaliana root meristem, by time-lapse confocalmicroscopy, is central to biology research. This paper discussesan automatic cell segmentation method, which selectsthe best cell candidates from a starting watershed segmentation.The selection of individual cells is obtained usinga Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier, based on theshape and edge strength of the cells contour. The result isan improved segmentation, which is largely pruned of badlysegmented cells
