The study of muscle remodeling in Drosophila metamorphosis using in vivo microscopy and bioimage informatics

Published date : 02 Oct 2012

Abstract
Background

Metamorphosis in insects transforms the larval into an adult body plan and comprises the destruction and remodeling of larval and the generation of adult tissues. The remodeling of larval into adult muscles promises to be a genetic model for human atrophy since it is associated with dramatic alteration in cell size. Furthermore, muscle development is amenable to 3D in vivo microscopy at high cellular resolution. However, multi-dimensional image acquisition leads to sizeable amounts of data that demand novel approaches in image processing and analysis.
