A new tool for analysis of root growth in the spatio-temporal continuum
Paramita Basu, Anupam Pal

Description

Growth Explorer is a software for analyzing growth patterns of plant roots from two- dimensional time series images, treating them as a spatio-temporal three-dimensional (3D) image volume. The roots are segmented from the images and then two types of analysis are performed: 3D spatio-temporal reconstruction analysis for simultaneous assessment of initiation and growth of multiple roots; and spatio-temporal pixel intensity analysis along root midlines for quantification of the growth zones.
