Title Image analysis for systems biology: experiences from the world of dynamic, genome-wide, high-throughput, and single-cell analyses
Abstract Imaging based experiments are increasingly being used in systems biology. This is in part due to the emergence of new technologies, such as lab-on-a-chip microfluidics, which enable the type of dynamic high-throughput experiments that systems biology requires. The studies are often done with model organisms, such as the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, for which genome-wide knock-out experiments can be readily made. Moreover, often a wide range of chemical environments need to be tested with a high resolution. All this results in that the amount of images that need to be analyzed can be almost overwhelming.

Several image analysis efforts that illustrate these points are discussed in the presentation. In addition, microfluidic systems in which both the experiment control and imaging are automated and controlled based on image analysis results are discussed.
