Light Microscopy and Screening Center

Research interest of Peter Horvath

Advanced microscopy

I am interested in developing methods for identifying and tracking cells or sub-cellular structures on live cell images. I have been developed a software the CellTracker, which corrects illumination problems, finds alignments, as well as automatically and manually tracks cells, mainly on phase contrast images. The program is available with MatLab GUI and will be shortly available as ImageJ plugin.

High content screening

We work on different high content screening-based projects related to image processing.

I have been developed high-throughput screening browser as a CellProfiler module, which creates a completely platform independent html-based browser to explore and visualize images and metadata. 


I am interested in classifying cells based on their intensity and shape features. I have been working on a tool which helps biologists to train different classifiers and extract meta-information from the images. Click here to enter the Advanced Cell Classifier (ACC) project page.


Image segmentation methods

During my Ph.D. we developed a method (the 'Gas of circles' model) which can model and extract only circular shapes from images using spectral and/or edge information. You can find more information here.
