    On developing and enhancing plant-level disease rating systems in real fields

    Yousef Atoum, Muhammad Jamal Afridi, Xiaoming Liu, J. Mitchell McGrath, Linda E. Hanson

    Cercospora leaf spot (CLS) is one of the most serious diseases of sugar beet worldwide, and if uncontrolled, causes nearly complete defoliation and loss of revenue for beet growers. The beet sugar industry continuously seeks CLS-resistant sugar beet cultivars as one strategy to combat this disease. Normally human experts manually ...

    Image Segmentation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Diverse Culturing Conditions

    Muhammad Jamal Afridi, Chun Liu, Christina Chan, Seungik Baek, Xiaoming Liu

    Researchers in the areas of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering have an enormous interest in understanding the relationship of different sets of culturing conditions and applied mechanical stimuli on the behavior of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). However, it remains a challenge to design a general tool to perform automatic cell ...
