Cellgrain is a pipeline script for Anduril analysis framework, that segments a live cell video from DAPI channel, and searches for granular objects in a second, signal channel. The method is used in the publication 'Henna M. Moore, Bayoan Bai, François-Michel Boisvert, Leena Latonen, Ville Rantanen, Jeremy C. Simpson, Rainer Pepperkok, Angus I. Lamond and Marikki Laiho "Quantitative proteomics and dynamic imaging of the nucleolus reveals distinct responses to UV and ionizing radiation", MCP Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, July 21, 2011.' The pipeline produces several plots describing the data.
