Plant cells display some of the fastest intracellular movements of all eukaryotic organisms. While easy to observe, we still know very little about the mechanisms that drive these movement or their biological function. To gain a better understanding, it is necessary to obtain a detailed description of the movement patterns in a cell. This description is complicated by the enormous complexity of these movements where many particles show highly variable speeds and directions. This project will utilize a novel approach based on statistical particle filtering to obtain more reliable track descriptions for quantitative analysis.
