Introduction to Image Analysis Course

Imageanalysis HMB

Course Program:

This course aims at providing researchers who are initiating microscopy-based projects with fundamental skills on digital imaging and biological image analysis. The course incorporates theoretical lectures as well as hands-on exercises which demonstrate image analysis procedures on Fiji/ImageJ, the reference open source image bioimage analysis software. Finally, trainees will learn about recording and automating image processing workflows. Trainees will be exposed to images produced by transmission, epifluorescence and confocal microscopes. At the end of the course, trainees will be able to use Fiji/ImageJ to open, visualize and perform basic image processing and analysis procedures on their own biological images.
