Bassam Hajj (UMR168) - "Visualizing and analyzing multidimensional point cloud data in Virtual reality"

Point cloud data, such as those generated by single-molecule localization microscopy, are continuously increasing in size and dimensionality. Gaining an intuitive perception of the recordings while interacting with the data in a fluid manner is highly desirable. Moreover, the necessity to guide analysis with user intervention creates an additional challenge. I will present our recent open source software Genuage dedicated to visualizing and analysis of multidimensional point cloud in virtual reality. New approaches and processes are implemented within the Genuage platform, in which enhanced flexibility and user experience are made possible by a set of communication tools and built-in functions. The working principle and other functionalities will be illustrated by several biological examples.

 

Pascal Hersen (UMR168) - "Dynamic control of signaling and gene expression"

The Dynamic control of signaling and gene expression group is an interdisciplinary team working at the frontier of physics and biology. They use microfabrication, microfluidics, fluorescence microscopy, synthetic biology and cell biology to dynamically play with cells, their signaling pathways and their gene regulatory networks. Their long term goal is to control cellular processes in space and time, with a specific focus on 1/ Cybergenetics: the ability to interact with cellular process and control them in real time and 2/ Synthetic embryology: how to study the emergence of spatial organization of tissues in vitro. To these ends, they are developing cutting edge tools for “intelligent microscopy” to automate the control of microscopes and imaging conditions in real-time to manipulate and capture cellular processes in live imaging.
