Course - Processing and analysis of microscopic images in biomedicine
8 - 12 April 2019, Institute of Molecular Genetics CAS, Vídeňská 1083, Prague 4 - Krč, Czech Republic
The 5-day intense course intended for Ph.D. students and early-stage researchers will provide participants with knowledge on image data processing and analysis. No previous knowledge is expected, the course will lead you step by step through the basis of microscopy data processing (e.g. what is an image, how it is created and processed to get the most of it), modern methods of image reconstruction and stereology. Apart from theoretical background, the emphasis is put on practical experience, the participants will learn how to use free software package Fiji for basic or more advanced analyses, how to evaluate co-localizations, analyse data from FRAP and electron microscopy data, how to track particles in images or segment objects. They will learn how to improve data by deconvolution in Huygens software. We will also have a lesson with Imaris together with practical exercises.
The course follows the Microscopy methods in biomedicine, the previous attendance of this course, however, is not necessary.
The course will be taught in English.
