We want to be able to track phenotype changes in cells as a function of time. Is there a module that allows automatic tracking across time slice images? Or is one planned or in development?
We do have a module for object tracking that was in beta form for version 5811. It has since been improved and will be included in the upcoming release. It will work for image sequences or for movies, but at this point, it can only work for one movie/sequence at a time.
CellProfiler 2.0 has a nice TrackObjects module to track cells over time through movies. LoadImages is now compatible with multiple independent movies being processed during the same CellProfiler analysis run.
