Course "Processing and analysis of microscopic images in biomedicine"
16 - 20 April 2018, Institute of Molecular Genetics CAS, Prague
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 FIJI (ImageJ) for basic or more advanced analyses and make their own macros, how to analyse co-localizations, data from FRAP, particle tracking or how to segment or deconvolve your images, see program). The course follows the course Microscopy methods in biomedicine, the previous attendance of this course, however, is not necessary.
You can also expect lessons with Imaris software package (http://www.bitplane.com/imaris/imaris). The lessons will be given by a professional specialist and will include practical exercises using company computers.
The course will be taught in English.
