INDEPTH Training School 2: From Pictures to Numbers
Wednesday, 27 March 2019
The aim of this course is to lower the threshold for researchers who use microscopy on a routine basis and demand image analysis for their own research. In line with former initiatives, the P2N workshop is conceived as an inter-University course, but this time it is a featured workshop of the INDEPTH COST Action.
The aim of this course is to lower the threshold for researchers who use microscopy on a routine basis and/or demand image analysis for their own research by:
a) providing fundamental knowledgeon the most important image properties, basic processing algorithms and typical analyses, and
b) by giving direct hands-on trainingon how to perform very common tasks in open source software ranging from simple image annotation to more advanced phenotypic analyses.
An overview of different image analysis platforms and an introduction to basic scripting capabilities should further enable the participants to select or devise apt solutions for their image analysis needs. The primary goal is to familiarize PhD students, post-docs and lab technicians, who work with microscopy images of biological samples and have limited or no experience with the fundamentals of biological image analysis.
Meeting website is here.
They will be able to support transport and accommodation of up to 15 INDEPTH members. The workshop will host a maximum of 30 delegates and preference will be given the delegates who can bring their own datasets for analysis.
Registration deadline is June 1st 2019.
