Image Processing and Analysis for Life Scientists

Nowadays, image-based methods are indispensable for life scientists. Light microscopy especially, has evolved from sketched out observations by eye, to high throughput multi-plane, multi-channel, multi-position and multimode acquisitions that easily produce thousands of information-rich images that must be quantified somehow to answer biological questions.

This course will teach you core concepts from image acquisition to image filtering and segmentation, to help you tackle simple image analysis workflows on your own. All examples use open source solutions, in order to allow you to be independent from commercial solutions. Emphasis is made on good practices and typical pitfalls in image analysis. At the end of this course, you will be able to adapt and reuse workflows to suit your specific needs and be equipped with the tools and knowledge to adapt and seek advice from the ever-growing image analyst community of which you will be a part now

The course is taught by senior image analysts with longtime work experience in a service-oriented core facility.
