Research Group Image Analysis
Group leader: Dr. Evgeny Gladilin
The research group image analysis focuses on the development and establishment of an information system for the storage and analysis of high-throughput image data.
Recently established infrastructure for the automated movement and imaging of plants enables researchers to collect huge amounts of image data (captured are visible light, near-infrared spectra and fluorescence). Newly developed or adapted image analysis and data integration methods as well as the usage of existing software packages make it possible to investigate developmental changes and differences in the phenotype of plants.
Essential for this work are close interactions with molecular and developmental biologists, molecular physiologists, genetics, biochemists and bioinformaticians as well as computer scientists.
