Time-lapse fluorescence microscopy (TLFM) is an important and powerful tool in synthetic biological research. Modeling TLFM experiments based on real data may enable researchers to repeat certain experiments with minor effort. This thesis is a study towards deep learning-based modeling of TLFM experiments on the image level. The modeling of TLFM experiments, by way of the example of trapped yeast cells, is split into two tasks. The first task is to generate synthetic image data based on real

The second task is the simulation of brightfield microscopy images over multiple discrete time-steps. To tackle this simulation task an advanced future frame prediction model is introduced. The proposed models are trained and tested on a novel dataset that is presented in this thesis. The obtained results showed that the modeling of TLFM experiments, with deep learning, is a proper approach, but requires future research to effectively model real-world experiments.
