A Brief Introduction to Biological Imaging Informatics

Due to significant technical improvements in microscopic imaging in recent years, it is now easier than ever to capture biological images such as the microscopic structures of nerves, blood vessels, and cells. This development, in turn, brings up the question of how to best analyze such images. Modern biological image files can be as large as several gigabytes as a result of the extremely high resolutions available today. In this regard, the study of biological imaging informatics is essentia ...more
