With the wide application of Green Fluorescent Proteins (GFP) in the study of live cells, there is a surging need for computer-aided analysis on the huge amount of image sequence data acquired by the advanced microscopy devices. In this paper, a framework based on Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) is proposed for multiple interacting object tracking. The distribution of the dimension varying joint state is sampled efficiently by a Reversible Jump Markov Chain Monte Carlo (RJMCMC) algorithm with a novel height swap move. Experimental results were performed on synthetic and real confocal microscopy image sequences.
