14:00 CET - 17:00 CET
- You have experience in taking microscopy images of biological samples.
- You have a research project that may require automated quantification of microscopy images.
This is an image analysis course for beginners and will cover the following topics:
- Image properties (data type, voxel size, display settings, …)
- Image segmentation (binarisation by thresholding)
- Image filtering and denoising
- Object detection (connected component analysis and label images)
- Object shape measurements
- Object intensity measurements
The practicals will be conducted using the graphical user interface of Fiji (https://fiji.sc/). However, we will focus on the concepts of image analysis rather than the specific implementation in Fiji. Thus, this course is also recommended if you are a beginner and want to perform image analysis in some other platform (e.g., using python scripting).
The course will be held online.
This is a joint course between EMBL and The Max Planck Society (for each organisation will have space for 15 praticipants).
If you can’t make it or don’t get a slot, please be aware that the course will be repeated later in the year!
Christian Tischer, Centre for Bioimage Analysis, EMBL Heidelberg, Germany.
