Image Processing Workshop

Location:

Online course

Start date:

23 November 2020

Duration:

23 (9h - 15h) and 27 (9h - 12h) November 2020

General context

Recent years, imaging and image processing has become essential for life scientists dealing with scientific images. In Life science, microscopy and imaging have become more and more important. Imaging has evolved from showing examples images towards quantitative biology. Image processing is playing a crucial role and is becoming a means of quantification in life science.
 

Approach

This course is aiming at the starter level of image processing and will use commonly available tools (ImageJ/FIJI). The course consists of lectures, demos, and practical exercises. The first day will provide an overview of different tools, pitfalls in image acquisition and image/data integrity and will then focus on Fiji from the basics to writing macros. The second day will be used for deepening the knowledge and feature other tools for analyzing large datasets and creating quantitative analysis pipelines. The attendees will be able to use basic image processing tools in between day 1 and 2 of the course and apply the learned concepts to their research.
