We are happy to announce the first instance of our very own image analysis school, taking place right here in Zurich.
This one-week school provides a hands-on introduction to image processing and analysis, with an emphasis on biologically relevant examples. You will learn the fundamentals of image analysis, including basic macro programming in ImageJ/Fiji as well as other software solutions.
In the first part of the week we will also cover the process of image-formation as it pertains to image analysis: Resolution, correct exposure, point-spread functions, detector noise, Shannon's sampling theorem, and aliasing. All with a clear focus on application in the lab.
In the second half of the week there will be a number of focused topics, building on what was learnt during the first days:
- Scripting in MATLAB
- Tracking particles and cells in time-lapse recordings
- De-convolution of microscopy images
- Stitching and registration of stacks of large image data
