About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

Microscopy Image Analysis Course, 19-20 September 2019, Heidelberg University, Germany

Karl Rohr, Thomas Wollmann, Qi Gao, Manuel Gunkel, Leonid Kostrykin (HD-HuB)

10:00-18:00 and 9:00-17:00

Heidelberg University
IPMB (Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology)

The course gives an introduction into the field of microscopy image analysis for cell biology and the use of software tools for automated processing of image data. Basic methods for computer-based analysis of microscopy images are introduced such as image preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction, classification, colocalization, and tracking. Concepts of software platforms with focus on ImageJ and their use for analyzing cell microscopy image data are also taught. Workflow systems for automating image analysis pipelines are also considered (e.g., KNIME, Galaxy). The course consists of lectures and practical sessions. Participants should bring their laptops for the practical sessions. The target group are researchers with a background in biology or medicine that need to analyze their data and have little or no experience in automated image analysis.

Learning goals:
– Introduction into cell microscopy image analysis
– Application of software tools for automated analysis of image data
