Image Processing & Analysis: Advanced Imaging Center, Janelia Research Campus, holds course at Aarhus University.
April 20 - April 23(Deadline: March 23)
Aim and Learning outcomes: The goal of this hands-on course is to survey the fundamentals of how image pixel data can be used to extract biologically meaningful information. Participants will install Fiji and will be given ample opportunity to work on actual images for truly hands-on learning experience and also learn to write macros to speed up analysis. Opportunity to discuss individual projects will also be available.
Content: Lecture and Laboratory Topics include: Image Processing: Fundamentals of digital images, the arts and science behind image processing and the ethics of knowing when not to alter an image, morphometry and object segmentation, Fourier transformation in image processing, the concept of color display and how color affects data interpretation.
Image Analysis: Volumetric and intensity measurement, co-localization analysis, the meaning and application of various co-localization indices, quantitative ratiometric image analysis, particle tracking, analysis of protein dynamics and movement. Writing of macros.
You must bring own laptop.
