Many cell biologists perform analysis of multinucleated cell data in order to better under- stand the mechanisms that regulate cell division. Sbalzarini, et al., have developed methods for automatically tracking nuclei in cell data in order to aid in this time-consuming analysis. In this paper, we present an implementation of the Sbalzarini tracking algorithm, introduce a new algorithm we developed which is able to identify mitosis events, and present other software tools we have developed to aid in the automated detection of nucleus data.
