Identify nuclei in a microscopy image and assign each pixel of the image to a particular nucleus
This model detects nuclei in a microscopy image and specifies the pixels in the image that are assigned to each nucleus. The model is developed based on the architecture of Mask R-CNN using Feature Pyramid network (FPN) and a ResNet50 backbone. Given an image (of size 64 x 64, 128 x 128 or 256 x 256), this model outputs the segmentation masks and probabilities for each detected nucleus. The mask is compressed using Run-length encoding (RLE).
The model is based on the TF implementation of Mask R-CNN. The model is trained on the Broad Bioimage Benchmark Collection (Accession number BBBC038, Version 1) dataset of annotated biological images.
