Cancer cell growth has been shown to affect receptor expression and organelle morphology. Therefore, differences in mitochondrial morphology and function in cancer cells are of key importance for the successful implementation of targeted drug therapy in the clinic. To improve our understanding of the heterogeneity of mitochondrial morphology in breast cancer cells, we have analyzed the morphology of mitochondria in a comparative manner across 2D-culture breast cancer cell systems. Moreover, we used machine learning methods to develop a classification method that can assign each 3D rendered mitochondrial object to their respective breast cancer cell type with good accuracy.
