Due to the large variability of biological tissue, machine learning techniques have shown superior performance over conventional image processing methods. Here, researchers present a deep neural network-based approach for segmentation and classification of glands in tissue of benign and malignant colorectal cancer.
Researchers identify frog bones within the stomach of a 35 million year old 'mummified' salamander fossil using advanced x-ray imaging techniques. At least six kinds of organs are preserved in almost perfect condition.
German Conference on Bioinformatics 2017 Collection
The "GCB 2017 Collection" contains research work that is presented at the German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) 2017 at Tübingen, September 18-21, 2017. All papers and highlight abstracts were peer-reviewed by the conference's Program Committee and/or by external reviewers, and poster abstracts have been checked for suitability to GCB.
