Feature extraction involves extracting relevant features from the fluorescence micrograph through the use of image segmentation. A variety of features are extracted for each channel. They are broadly classified as "Morphology", "Intensity", "Texture" and "Colocalization". Details of the features can be found here. The script is developed using Acapella(Perkin Elmer) script. Cell segmentation' example script. Generate stencils of different subcellular compartments. Calculate the ratio of two compartments.

Oxygen and glucose are the food of our brain. If they are absent, such as during a stroke, nerve cells die. An international research team at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany, and McMaster University, Canada, has discovered a novel mechanism to prevent this cell death. The results of the study have now been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA. For the complete article. An incubator of medical innovation.
