Abstract

Measurements of nuclear organization in asymmetric nuclei in 2D images have

sperm samples, typically by dividing the nucleus into zones, and manually scoring which zone a

prone to subjectivity. We have developed a new approach for automated mapping of FISH signals

Automatic landmark detection defines equivalent structural regions in each nucleus, then dynamic

within the entire cell population. Using this approach, we mapped the positions of the sex

musculus and Mus spretus). We found that in all three, chromosomes 11 and 19 tend to interact with

conserved across 2 million years of mouse evolution.
