Work, work


For those who have wondered what I do by day, here's a video created in the course of my 'real' job. What you're looking at is basically a fly around of a fairly late stage zebrafish embryo. The orange and purple are nuclei within the embryo proper and the grey is a layer of cells that envelope the yolk.

I work on the image analysis pipeline, Starrynite, that goes from volume data of developing embryos to segmented cells moving over time (or in this case not moving).  I also built the analysis and rendering scripts that segmented the cloud of detected nuclei into layers based on geometry and cell density, in order to create this movie highlighting the structure of the embryo and the correspondence between the image and segmentation.
