About the research centre or Inria department
The Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique Centre is one of Inria's eight centres and has more than thirty research teams. The Inria Center is a major and recognized player in the field of digital sciences. It is at the heart of a rich R&D and innovation ecosystem: highly innovative PMEs, large industrial groups, competitiveness clusters, research and higher education players, laboratories of excellence, technological research institute, etc.
This position is framed under the NAVISCOPE Inria Challenge, an Inria project aiming to bring together different research teams at Inria with complementary expertise around the acquisition, capture, analysis and visualization of biological imaging data. Precisely, it aims at creating an operational system allowing biologists to better explore and analyses massive biological data. This project regroups different research teams located at Rennes (SERPICO, HYBRID), Lyon (MOSAIC), Sophia Antipolis (MORPHEME) and Montpellier. Three main software systems are developed in the context of the project:
Gnomon: A computational platform to analyze and simulate the development of living forms in 3D. https://gnomon.gitlabpages.inria.fr/gnomon/
BioImage-IT: Aims at providing recipes and tools for imaging facilities to deploy interoperable image processing and data analysis solutions. https://project.inria.fr/bioimageit
MorphoNet: An interactive anatomical browser for 3D, 3D+t segmented datasets. https://morphonet.org
In this project, you will integrate experimentation and development team (SED) from Inria Rennes, and the teams SERPICO and HYBRID also in Rennes. In the context of this project will have to interact with other partners in Lyon and Sophia Antipolis.
The main mission in this project will be the development of a virtual reality visualization tool based on Morphonet. Morphonet is composed of two main components, a server component which handles data management and a client component which is mainly composed of a Unity web-based visualized. Over the last two years, an initial effort has been conducted to create a proof-of-concept system for a virtual reality visualization for Morphonet. Our objective is to push the boundaries of the current system enabling a full interoperability of the Morphonet system allowing the visualization and the annotation of biological datasets in virtual reality and to seamlesslty share and get data from Gnomon.
In order to do that, the candidate will be part of an agile team using the SCRUM framework. He/She will mainly focus on designing and building a native version of the Morphonet VR system while being supportive on other parts of the project.
Propose and implement immersive visualization solutions.
Ensure a full interoperability with Morphonet.
