Abstract

Image processing is a common task in the biological sciences. This project explores the development and design patterns of programs created for this purpose through the creation of an image processing program meant to determine the area occupied by cellular aggregates. The python programming language was utilized due to it being a free and open-source general purpose language. This facilitated exploratory programming and allowed the use of outside tools, such as Gnu Parallel, to be leveraged while running the program. The resulting programs effectiveness in comparison to manual image processing, both in terms of the total time spent and the methods accuracy, is also discussed.
