DeepFinder is an original deep learning approach to localize macromolecules in cryo electron tomography images. The method is based on image segmentation using a 3D convolutional neural network.


This method has been developed in the frame of Emmanuel Moebel’s PhD thesis at Inria Rennes, under Charles Kervrann’s supervision (team Serpico).

What DeepFinder is

DeepFinder is a python3 package that allows analysing 3D images with a deep learning method. It possesses a graphical user interface to allow non-computer scientists to work with this tool. It is based on the Keras package.
