This 3-day course describes the acquisition, processing and analysis of microscopic images for scientific publications. The course is based on and gives an introduction to, the freely available Fiji/Image J software platform and combines lectures and practical training on actual images.


Advanced biocomputing

Over the last decade, biological data sets have been rapidly growing in size and complexity. This course focuses on how to use computers to streamline the analysis of biological data, with an emphasis on “working smart” rather than hard. Developing a solid background in how computers can facilitate...
