Paper Abstract

Four-dimensional (4D) microscopy, the acquisition of time-resolved 3D images of living biological samples, provides not only structural data but also contains information on the mechanics and forces inside a living cell. In order to extract, quantify, and visualize such information for chromosomes, we are exploring simple computational methods that will allow quantitative estimation of chromosome motion within 4D images of living nuclei. A correspondence-based approach is required due to limited temporal resolution. The chromosomes we are tracking are relatively textureless, but additional structural constraints can be imposed to discriminate against false matches.
