Mark Kittisopikul, Ph.D.
Mark Kittisopikul is a postdoctoral Scientific Computing Associate at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute working with the Scientific Computing team to support the computational needs of the lab of Philipp Keller for next-generation light-sheet microscopy.
Light-sheet microscopy is a technique that volumetrically scans fluorescently tagged biological specimens efficiently at high rates of speed. This data consists of three dimensional data collected over time across color channels and multiple views and results in a data flow of tens of gigabytes per second. I will discuss using Julia to meet the near acquisition demands of handling such data including 1) unpacking 12-bit integers, 2) compression, 3) chunking into subvolumes, and 4) storage.
