Multi-Environment Model Estimation for Motility Analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans
The system consists of two components: (1) a user input and learning stage and (2) an image analysis stage. In stage (1), the user provides an image () and marks the nematode boundary () and width (). From this input, appearance models for the nematode () and background () are learned. In (2), for each image () in a sequence, nematodes are then segmented () by using and . Nematode skeletons () are then extracted from these segmentations.
