RootAnalyzer: A Cross-Section Image Analysis Tool for Automated Characterization of Root Cells and TissuesJoshua Chopin, Hamid Laga, Chun Yuan Huang, Sigrid Heuer, Stanley J. MiklavcicPLOS ONE, 2017 View paper
RootAnalyzer is a fully automated tool, for efficiently extracting and analyzing anatomical traits from root-cross section images. Using a range of image processing techniques such as local thresholding and nearest neighbor identification, RootAnalyzer segments the plant root from the image's background, classifies and characterizes the cortex, stele, endodermis and metaxylem, and subsequently produces statistics about the morphological properties of the root cells and tissues.
