The increasing use of methods from mathematics, computer science and theoretical physics in the exploration of biological systems is one of the hallmarks of today's science. This is due to great advances in the understanding of living systems, the establishment of new experimental techniques providing large amounts data, methodological advances in mathematical modelling, and the continuing growth in available computer power for numerical calculations and simulations.
The research of the Image Analysis group covers the following research areas:
- Application of different imaging and measurement techniques to explore biological and environmental systems
- Analysis of images and experimental data using univariate and multivariate statistics
- Development of methods and algorithms for image analysis
