Dariusz Plewczyński, PhD, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

Dariusz Plewczyński , PhD, is a professor at the University of Warsaw in Center of New Technologies CeNT, the head of the Laboratory of Functional and Structural Genomics and a professor and principal investigator at the Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science at Warsaw University of Technology. His main expertise covers computational genomics, nuclear imaging, biophysics, and bioinformatics. He is actively developing artificial intelligence algorithms, image processing approaches, performing biophysical simulations, and applying computational modelling to various interdisciplinary problems in Human genomics. 

Dariusz Plewczyński's research interests are focused on functional and structural genomics. His goal is to combine epigenomic, transcriptional and super-resolution imaging data with spatial and temporal nucleus structure for better understanding of the biological function of genomes.

About the Collection

BMC Bioinformatics is welcoming submissions for our Collection focused on Computational methods in microscopy image analysis.

Microscopy imaging techniques have revolutionized our understanding of biological processes by enabling the visualization of cellular and molecular details with unprecedented resolution. However, the complexity and volume of microscopic data pose significant challenges for analysis and interpretation. Computational methods are crucial in extracting meaningful information from microscopy images, enhancing image resolution, and uncovering subtle biological processes.

This Collection aims to showcase innovative computational approaches and bioinformatics tools tailored for microscopy image analysis, with potential topics including but not limited to:

  • Computational methods in Electron Microscopy and FRET-FLIM microscopy
  • Image processing techniques for light microscopy and confocal microscopy
  • Novel algorithms for image segmentation, object detection, and feature extraction in microscopy
  • Integration of multi-modal and SCAPE microscopy data
  • Quantification of spatial and temporal dynamics in fluorescence microscopy analysis
  • Convolution and deconvolution methods for microscopy images
  • Application of machine learning techniques for automated microscopy image analysis


This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
