Common types of analysis#

In this section, we detail information and tips about some common, very useful types of image analysis. We first describe two aspects of morphological analysis. Morphology is the study of the appearance, form, and structure of an object and morphological measurements include those based on object shape (e.g. cell area) as well as intensity (e.g. mean brightness of GFP). After describing shape-based and intensity-based analyses, we also present tips for measuring colocalization, tracking objects, and classifying objects.
