New Machine Learning Tools for 3D volume analysis

A new software tool has been developed by Computer Vision Lab PhD student Imanol Luengo as part of his studentship with the Diamond Light Source. The SuRVoS (Super-Region Volume Segmentation) Workbench is designed to facilitate the segmentation of complex biological datasets captured at the Diamond Light Source. With SuRVoS, a volume is first partitioned into super-regions and then interactively segmented by the user inputting training annotations. SuRVoS can then learn from and extend the annotations to the whole volume, a process that is currently five times faster than purely manual segmentation. The tool was recently published in the Journal of Structural Biology, and the tool appeared on the front cover.
