High Content Analysis and Information-intensive Instruments

The High-Content Analysis And Information-Intensive Instruments group conducts research in the four fields Big Data, image and video analysis, data integration, and extensible software platforms, with a special focus on the life sciences.

Systematically capturing and evaluating large amounts of measurement data from biomedical research is a particular challenge in high-content analysis. By combining our expertise in a range of fields, we are able to extract information from the collected data and to visualize it in a form suitable to the user. 

We use a broad range of technologies, including

  • Object detection and classification in (microscopic) images;
  • Structuring and managing large volumes of data;
  • Presentation and visualization of information.

We develop software components, incorporate them in systems and validate them.
