Course 

Microscopic Image Analysis: From Theory to Practice 

Description 
Microscopic images contain much more information than normally is retrieved. Especially time-lapse image data contains a wealth of information. Extracting this information by visual inspection and manual measurement is not only cumbersome but also subjective. Automation of image analysis tasks by using a computer and the right software tools allows for higher efficiency, accuracy, objectivity, reproducibility, and completeness.

During this course, the participant will 1) obtain a deeper theoretical understanding of image analysis methods, and 2) obtain practical experience with image analysis software tools (in particular ImageJ) and learn how to use them intelligently, on their own computer.

Requirements
Participants should bring their own (!) laptop computer to the course for the practical exercises. Software and sample image data will be provided during the course (USB stick). No prior knowledge of image processing is required.
 

Audience and participation
The course is intended for PhD students and Postdocs who would like to deepen their understanding of image analysis methods and learn how to use them. No prior knowledge of image processing is required. The maximum amount of participants is 30.
