Multiscale image-based modelling in biology
7th November 2018, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Physics, Tyndall Lecture Theatre
In this talk I will describe a state of the art image based modelling in several seemingly different areas of biology. I show examples from biomedical (lymphatic, vascular and lung system) and agricultural problems of plant soil interaction. I will describe the workflow from imaging (X-ray CT, XRF, SEM-EDX, histology), image reconstruction, image segmentation, computation and how to utilize this work stream to synthesise new scientific knowledge. In particular I will also outline several challenges and bottlenecks in this process to hopefully encourage more mathematicians to get involved in the full pipeline.
