LS2.4: 3D Image Processing (3D microscopy, 3D image analysis and developmental imaging)
Session co-organisers: Roland Fleck, Jiri Janacek
Introduction: 2 sessions will tackle the challenges of image processing in dynamic (living) and 3D systems.  The new insight into systems biology offered by 3D visualisation of the building blocks of life are key to advancing our understanding of how living systems work.  These visualisation challenges are at the basic structural units which assemble to form organelle through to the functional interactions between complex tissues in whole organisms.  Microscopy plays a critical role in these studies, however, the processing of the images/ data generated is increasingly important in understanding these systems.  
Session 1 will consider electron microscopy and 3D image analysis of spatial structures.
Session 2 will consider optical imaging solutions which offer news insight into complex multicellular systems.
