“A computer system that automatically tracks the movements of proteins within a living cell has been developed by a team of biologists and computer vision experts. It could save researchers the hours often spent analysing microscope images by hand, to determine the way a cell works.”

 

Having spent many, many hours analysing microscope images by hand, I am giving this a big thumbs up! Looks like a promising project.
