Scientific Image Processing and Analysis (Biovoxxel - Dr. Jan Brocher)

The workshop aims to teach natural scientists from different areas of life science how to handle and process digital images starting from e.g. microscopic image acquisition until the incorporation into the final publication figure.

This includes important theory about high quality digital images in general (e.g. how to achieve good resolution) as well as a broad spectrum of methods for scientifically correct image processing and specific analytical purposes according to high scientific standards. You will learn how to extract different types of information from your images and how to quantify objects and intensities. Additionally, the workshop includes a lot of hands-on sessions, methods to automate repetitive tasks to decrease time investment while reducing user bias. Furthermore, it provides some guidelines for do's and dont's during publication figure preparation.

You will be able to revisit the learned material using the provided exercises and script also later on. The workshop content is generally of importance for scientists working with digital images and their analysis but has a strong focus on microscopy! Optional topics will be adjusted to meet the participants needs as good as possible if there is time left.

Furthermore, specific participant question regarding image processing or solutions for analysis issues can be personally discussed if communicated beforehand (e-mail with question and example images).

Registration via StudIP (and more information)! Free places are available!
