Image analysis has become an indispensable tool in microscopy and has gained significant popularity and importance in recent years. The ability to turn images into data in a systematic way without subjective interpretation is critical. Furthermore, as microscopy becomes increasingly automated, the amount of data generated can be enormous and challenging. New image analysis tools, workflows and computing power allow us to make sense of large data sets and answer increasingly complex biological questions.
