Interface to run the morphodynamics package.

License PyPI Python Version tests codecov napari hub

This plugin offers an interface for the Morphodynamics package which allows to study the shape and intra-cellular dynamics of cells imaged as time-lapses by fluorescence microscopy. The plugin offers a single place to perfrom segmentation, windowing (partition cells into small regions of interests that are tracked over time) and results visualization. The software depends on napari-convpaint a pixel-classifier and/or on cellpose for segmentation.


You can install the plugin via pip with:

pip install napari-morphodynamics

To install latest development version :

pip install git+
