Cancer Screening Algorithms Win First Place at ISBI 2014

DaniCRDhp.jpg

An automated method to extract the boundaries of individual cytoplasm and nucleus from overlapping cervical cell images, developed by Berkeley Lab's Daniela Ushizima and Brazilian collaborators, won first place at an IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2014) competition. The tool included pattern recognition algorithms developed by DOE's CAMERA to characterize new materials. » Read More

For decades, synchrotron light sources have been operating on a manual grab-and-go data management model, but a recent deluge of data is quickly making this practice implausible. So scientists from the Advanced Light Source (ALS), CRD and NERSC teamed up to create new tools for reducing, managing, analyzing and visualizing beamline data.The result of this collaboration is SPOT Suite, and it is already transforming the way scientists run their experiments at the ALS. » Read More
