Workshop on Bio-image informatics
The aim of this course is to lower the threshold for researchers who use microscopy on a routine basis and/or demand image analysis for their own research by:
a) providing fundamental knowledgeon the most important image properties, basic processing algorithms and typical analyses, and
b) by giving direct hands-on trainingon how to perform very common tasks in open source software ranging from simple image annotation to more advanced phenotypic analyses.
An overview of different image analysis platforms and an introduction to basic scripting capabilities should further enable the participants to select or devise apt solutions for their image analysis needs. The primary goal is to familiarize PhD students, post-docs and lab technicians, who work with microscopy images of biological samples and have limited or no experience with the fundamentals of biological image analysis.
