DBI survey on Image Analysis Needs in Life Science Research in Denmark

As part of DBIs Work Group 1 on Image analysis tools and data management we are conducting a short survey to better understand the needs and the current status of the bioimage analysis in life sciences at Danish research institutions.

Please help us by by answering the survey here

You will be anonymous by default: we will only use statistics.

If you have any questions or want to take part in developing new activities within this area please contact the leader of Work Group 1 Daniel Wüstner, SDU (wuestner(at)bmb.sdu.dk)

DFM reaches out to DBI – survey on the needs for a new traceable fluorescence infrastructure

As a GTS institute, Danish National Metrology Institute (DFM), has received support from the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science (Uddannelses- og Forskningsstyrelsen ) to establish traceability for fluorescence measurements in Denmark. Our goal is to assist in establishing traceable, quantitative, comparable fluorescence data.

DFM hereby calls for your input into prioritizing the direction for the new traceable fluorescence infrastructure. DFM is interested in your view as to what challenges you have within fluorescence measurements as well as your present and future needs.

There are only 7 questions to answer. It will take 1-2 minutes. Please find the survey here

The survey is anonymous. We only collect the responses and no personal information. The survey closes on April 1st at 4 pm.

Would you like to hear more, or discuss your challenges with fluorescence measurements? Are you interested in a potential collaboration with DFM or a pilot study? Reach out to Research Scientist Olga Rodenko (oro(at)dfm.dk)

List of online talks and other opportunities from the Royal Microscopical Society

During these uncertain times with COVID-19, the RMS is working to help the microscopical community continue to share its knowledge and expertise remotely and are currently developing a dedicated website feature for their members to share information on a whole host of events, training, webinars and other items.

They have also added a long list of online talks and other opportunities, incl. tutorials, lectures and tips. Check them out here

NEUBIAS Academy @Home – A new series of online events targeting Bioimage Analysis Technology

Live online events targeting all levels in Bioimage analysis. Live Online Courses will provide interactivity with the audience (e.g. exercises in virtual breakout rooms), live Webinars will target larger audience with specific topics, software tools, theoretical content or critical updates, from introductions to concepts to very advanced implementations.

Questions and Answers will be moderated by experts. Webinars will be recorded and made available on Youtube NEUBIAS Channel , and a thread per event will be opened in the image.sc Forum to report Q&As and to welcome further questions/comments.

Most of the events are now on YouTube
