Cell Profiler - Measure Texture


I am analyzing the shape of cell nucleus from Drosophila intestinal cells, using images of LAMIN immunostaining. To do, so I am trying to use cell profiler “measure texture” module, however I am not sure which value I should use from the generated data file.
Could someone help me with the signification of the different values generated ?
Also, would you use the same module or an other one ?

Thanks in advance for your help,


Hi @Sonya,

You can find definitions for each statistic in the module help dialog within CellProfiler. Which value to use is largely dependent on what you’re interested in, so it’s difficult to give you a specific statistic to look at. However, if you’re primarily interested in the nuclear shape you might be better off using the MeasureObjectSizeShape module.

Hope that helps!
