Biological imaging, course for master and PhD students, 7.5 ECTS
April 23 - June 20(Deadline: April 16)
This course will introduce to all important modalities of advanced biological and biomedical imaging using photons, electrons, X-rays and neutrons, available in the Øresund region in core facilities and at synchrotron and linear accelerators (MAX IV and ESS). These modalities offer a wide zoom range and the resolution power to resolve the substructure of molecules, cells, tissues, organs and whole bodies. The course is relevant for PhD students within biological, chemical, physical, medical, molecular and pharmaceutical sciences and will be coordinated with the MSc course “Biological Imaging”.
In particular the following topics will be treated: fluorescence microscopy, fluorescence life time imaging, super resolution microscopy, electron and cryo electron microscopy, X-ray imaging and imaging at synchrotron and linac beamlines. An important part will be the concomitant data analysis, -management and –statistics as well as image processing.
