Automated microscopy imaging systems facilitate high-throughput screening in molecular cellular biology research. The first step of these systems is cell nucleus segmentation, which has a great impact on the success of the overall system. This technical report contains the supplementary material for the iterative h-minima based marker-controlled watershed algorithm that we developed for the purpose of segmenting the nuclei of cells in fluorescence microscopy images.
