[intlist,timelist,errors] = meanintdynamics(cellList,...)
This function plots the dynamics of the signal in a list of
cells obtained by MicrobeTracker. Note, the background has to be corrected and
necessary controls taken to accont for possible background fluorescence and the
signal integrated and present in the list.
<cellList> - an array
that contains the meshes. You can drag and drop the file with the data into
MATLAB workspace or open it using MATLAB Import Tool. The default name of the
variable is cellList, but it can be renamed.
<timelist> - the list of timepoints when each frame
was taken. For example, if 3 images were taken at zero time and 2 more 10
minutes this array must be [0 0 0 10 10].
<frame2time> - the intervals between frames. If
'timelist' array is not provided, the each frame will be considered taken at a
different timepoint separated by 'frame2time' intervals. If not provided, the
data will be plotted versus frame rathen than time. The constructed timelist
can be obtained at function's output.
<signal> - the signal field which
will be processed. Must be in single quotes and must start with the word
'signal'. The default is 'signal1'.
'area'/'volume' - normalize the signal inside cells by
the area or volume of that cell. Otherwise the total signal will be calculated
for each cell (and averaged for each timepoint).
'errorbar' - show errorbars.
'nodisp' - do not produce a plot (otherwise it is
automatically created). Note, the command does not open a new figure window
if at least one exists already. Use MATLAB's 'figure' command to create a new
figure if you wish to avoid replotting any of the existing figures.
<intlist> - mean intensity array corresponding to
all cells at the 'timelist' points.
<errors> - errorbar sizes corresponding to the
standard error of the mean for each intensity value in 'intlist'.
