The use of deep neural networks (DNNs) for analysis of complex biomedical images shows great promise but is hampered by a lack of large verified datasets for rapid network evolution. Here we present a novel “mimicry embedding” strategy for rapid application of neural network architecture-based analysis of biomedical imaging datasets. Embedding of a novel biological dataset, such that it mimics a verified dataset, enables efficient deep learning and seamless architecture switching. We apply this strategy across various microbiological phenotypes; from super-resolved viruses to in vivo parasitic infections. We demonstrate that mimicry embedding enables efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional microscopy datasets. The results suggest that transfer learning from pre-trained network data may be a powerful general strategy for analysis of heterogeneous biomedical imaging datasets.
