[:en]France BioImaging is organising an “BioImage Analysis OpenDesk” session on November the 29th from 9:00 to 12:30, in its different nodes and online.

What is an OpenDesk ?

During the event, users in search for answers to image processing-related questions come to a dedicated spot, within the Facility. Individual questions are processed by BioImage Analysts, on a “first come-first served basis”.

Will I really get my image processing questions answered ?

We will work on that ! Depending on the topic, local BioImage Analyst may choose from one of those three options:
1-The problem might be solved locally, quickly: you will leave the Facility with either a procedure/advices on how to analyse your data.
2-The problem might be solved locally, but requires additional time to be processed: your Facility staff will propose an appointment so that a proper solution is found.
3-The problem might not be solved locally: we will take benefit of the France BioImaging infrastructure, through its dedicated transversal node (FBI-IPDM). Your local Facility staff will introduce you to specialists in the field, using remote communication means.

I’m in ! Where and when is it taking place ?

November the 29th, from 9:00 to 12:30.

By the way, what is FBI-IPDM ?

The objective of the BioImage Informatics – Image Processing & Data Management transversal node is to create a general framework and a complete and integrated image analysis and IT (Information Technology) solution to address a number of challenges in biological imaging and microscopy, as well as setting up a high performance grid-computing infrastructure dedicated to massive computational and data storage demands. The FBI-IPDM node proposes different IT frameworks to deal with the data flow from the different imaging nodes. FBI-IPDM node is thus transverse, by definition.[:fr]France BioImaging is organizing a “BioImage Analysis OpenDesk” session on November the 29th from 9:00 to 12:30, in its different nodes and online.

FBI Industry Committee Special Prize: Nathanaël Prunet – California Institute of Technology with “Arabidopsis Inflorescence”

Arabidopsis inflorescence 1 © Nathanaël Prunet, Caltech, Meyerowitz lab
Confocal microscopy

This is a live Arabidopsis inflorescence with young flower buds developing at the periphery. Cell walls have been stained with propidium iodide (grey). Fluorescent reporters were used to monitor the expression of the APETALA3 (AP3, green) and SUPERMAN (SUP, red) genes. AP3 is required for the development of stamens (the male organs), while SUP establishes the boundary between the male and female part of the flower. This picture was acquired using live confocal imaging, which allows us to describe the expression of several genes in both space and time, in the same live biological samples, with a precise cellular resolution. It finally allows us to understand a question that has been elusive for 25 years: how the male/female boundary is established during the formation of the flower. My research aims at understanding how flower buds are patterned as they form.

FBI Grand

On Friday April 14 2017, we will have the pleasure to welcome you to our Annual Meeting, to be held at the Curie Institute (Paris, France). This event, open to all members of the bioimaging community, aims to provide a platform to discuss pivotal subject matters in our field. This year, the France BioImaging Annual meeting will focus on the topic of “Future challenges in BioImaging”.

This main topic will be divided into six “challenges”, as described below:

CHALLENGES

Challenge 1: “QUANTIFICATION OF THE MOLECULAR DYNAMICS AND COORDINATION IN CELLS AND SMALL ORGANISMS, INCLUDING AT THE NANOMETER SCALE”
This session will focus on emerging in super-resolution, single-molecule and fluctuation microscopies. The session will bring together scientists working on new technological developments, on new probes, and new acquisition schemes including three-dimensional and in depth imaging. Specifically, we will aim to cover the following topics:

  • Quantification of dynamics in Super-Resolution, single-molecule, and fluctuation based microscopies.
  • Use of adaptive optics for in depth imaging in tissues or small organisms
  • New technologies for 3D imaging, including single-molecule localization and STED.
  • New probes for super-resolution and fluctuations techniques.
  • Micro-scale dynamics and molecular interactions by fluctuation techniques.
The main purpose will be to discuss and brainstorm on the key methodological challenges in this field in the near future (5 years).
Challenge 2: “IMAGING ARCHITECTURES AND PROCESSES OF LIFE, FROM MOLECULAR COMPLEXES TO MULTI CELLULAR SYSTEMS”
Imaging Microscopy to explore biological systems in space and time and across scales, including the observation of development, growth and aging of organisms, is a major challenge. This session is dedicated to future challenges in microscopy imaging to integrate molecular architecture, spatial and temporal control of gene expression, sub cellular dynamics and cell behaviors in morphogenesis and organogenesis.
Keywords: Multimodal an multiscale imaging; developmental biology; in toto 3D+time imaging; super resolution in correlative approaches; CLEM.

Challenge 3: “NEW FRONTIERS FOR IMAGING, SENSING, AND CONTROLLING BIOMOLECULES”
Methods for remote control of cellular processes by means of a trigger (light, magnetic field,…) have seen explosive growth. Recently, efforts have led to the engineering of powerful approaches in which fusing biomolecules with triggerable modules enables to turn their function on and off in response to the trigger action. Associated with intrumental tools (e.g. optical methods of active illumination or excitation beam shaping), these approaches have yielded an outstanding alternative  to standard genetic or pharmacological methods with much improved spatiotemporal resolution to analyze cell signaling and other molecular regulation in cells and multicellular complexes. On the other hand, new  probes and methods allow for visualization and sensing of molecules in live cell and during the development of multicellular organisms. This challenge should reflect the latest progresses on how the integration of chemistry and biology will frame our ways to investigate Life Sciences.
Challenge 4: “UNCONVENTIONAL IMAGING”
The combination of  imaging techniques with spatially and temporally tailored beams and reconstruction algorithms provide new approaches to cell imaging. These approaches exploit the properties of electromagnetic fields, such as polarization, spectrum or wavefront diversity, and new measurement schemes. We will discuss the implementation of such unconventional imaging techniques and the specific challenges that they face in terms of sensing, collection, data processing, and interpretation.

Unconventional imaging techniques include imaging from polarization/phase/aperture diversity, imaging using ultrafast pulses or wavefront control, imaging through turbid media

Challenge 5: BIOIMAGE INFORMATICS, IMAGE PROCESSING AND MICROSCOPY DATA MANAGEMENT”
This session will focus on emerging technologies in life science regarding microscopy, informatics & applied mathematics. The purpose is to bring together scientists working in the area of informatics and scientists working in life sciences who uses microscopy as a main tool in their research. Specifically, this session will cover some of the following themes:
– Visualization, manipulation and analysis of large multidimensional images
– Image correlation and fusion of multimodal and multiscale images
– Data mining and machine learning in biological studies from microscopy images
– Spatiotemporal Modeling and simulation of biological mechanisms
– Information Technologies for distributed computing, smart data storage and interactive image data bases.
Challenge 6: NEW BIOLOGICAL MODELS AND APPROACHES: HOW WILL THEY FRAME THE NEXT CHALLENGES IN BIOIMAGING?”
In recent years, the Life Sciences have experienced an impressive number of methodological revolutions, and many new fields of investigation have opened up. This is reflected in a diversification of our models of studies (new model organisms, plant and marine; stem cells hiPCs, IPCs…), new approaches of genetic engineering (genome editing, CRISPR/Cas), new large-scale programs (Brain imaging initiatives…) and new biological concepts (epigenetics…).
These discoveries and research directly impact or will necessarily impact current or future biological imaging technologies. The purpose of this session will be to reflect on and discuss the challenges ahead. It will allow, through the multi-disciplinarity represented within FBI and consistent examples, to define the major issues that our community will have to confront in the next 5 to 10 years.

Of the six challenges, four were selected to be part of the final program : Challenges 1, 2, 3 & 5. Challenges 4 & 6 will be represented during the poster session.

The National Coordination

Dear (es) colleagues,

Registration deadline May 28, 2016
Registration: http://gdr-miv.fr/mifobio2016/pre-inscription/
September 30 to October 7, 2016
Club Belambra Seignosse, Landes
See the Poster

As you know, our school MIFOBIO on biological and technological advances in live imaging will take place in Seignosse from 30 September to 7 October 2016 (http://gdr-miv.fr/mifobio2016). This school is organized by the CNRS GDR “microscopy and imaging of living” and RTmfm network with the support of INSERM, France BioImaging, ITMO AVIESAN and EMBRC infrastructure. This year, in addition to the developmental biology models already used in previous years, this year the EMBRC infrastructure (European Biological Resource Centre Marines) will provide some biological models marine (sea urchins, sea squirts, jellyfish, sponges, etc …) to different stages of development.

This school is not reserved for experts in microscopy, but also aims to help “beyond the borders” by bringing the skills and thus provide access to the tremendous potential of imaging and microscopy for biology. To this end, we propose this year a new “challenge bio”.

“challenge bio”

Biologists, particularly those who do not usually use microscopy or wishing to test new imaging modalities can propose a biological problem for which they need imaging. It is not necessary to have a priori on imaging methods’ (acquisition, analysis and modeling) to implement. These are the people involved in imaging (acquisition and analysis) that can recognize the problems posed an interest or potential for their technical and propose experiments that will be conducted during MiFoBio.

The objective is to take advantage of the combination in one place of exceptional technological platform and cutting-edge expertise in the various disciplines, to clear new issues and pave the way for collaboration beyond school.

We invite you to register at the school through the website (http://gdr-miv.fr/mifobio2016/pre-inscription/) and if you wish to propose a “bio challenge” in imaging (localization, quantification , dynamic, interaction, multi-scale, …). Due to the large number of requests for participation at this school, selection of participants will be made on the basis of this information (300 seats).

 

cordially

Laurent Héliot, Serge Monneret, Tristian Piolot,

for the organizing committee MiFoBio

Affiche Mifobio2016 GB Dear all,

The second call for workshops in MiFoBio2016 is on!

To date, we have almost 80 workshops proposed, with 45 pre-selected. We thank all those who have brought these proposals. When selecting, a particular attention will be paid to the educational aspect, the innovative nature of the proposal, the close association of a biological problem addressed to the technological approach.

Pre-selected workshops will be validated once obtained the certainty that required material will be available during the school.
 

For this second call, we would like to reinforce certain themes, however not exclusively :

    • All type of home-made microscopy systems
    • optogenetics approaches
    • Imaging of scattering media, heterogeneous, outliers, …. (adaptive optics)
    • Application of biological models on small organisms (insects, fish, … but excluding mammals) for developmental biology
    • neuro-biological imaging
    • Photomanipulations
    • Bio-sensors
    • nonlinear imaging and non-conventional imaging (phase imaging, ….)
    • Microscopy with structured illumination
    • Contribution of microfluidics for microscopy
    • Modelling and simulation of molecular dynamics and cellular organization.

 

Procedure for proposing a workshop:

    1. Application to attend the thematic MiFoBio2016 school: go to the website of GDR-MIV: http://gdr-miv.fr/mifobio2016/ to get your identifiers.
    2. Then submit your workshop proposal via the dedicated website: http://ateliers-mifobio.fr
    3. Login using your GDR-MIV identifiers.
    4. Go in the “Workshops / Submit a new workshop” and fill in all the form fields.

In the “abstract” (1000 characters max.) Thank you to define the objective(s) of the workshop you propose. A “description” field (10000 characters) is available for a more detailed explanation. This will be used for evaluation.

The whole site is in English. Your proposals must be registered on the website before 23 April.

 

What changes from previous editions:

    • You can create and edit your workshop proposals online.
    • Workshops can have only two trainers/animators. For this purpose a specific mechanism has been put in place:

      o The main animator creates the workshop file.
      o Then goes in the “Workshops / List my workshops” section.
      o In the “Code for co-animator” he “copy / paste” the code and sends it by mail to his co-animator.
      o The co-animator connects to the site (after having pre-registred to MiFoBio). Then he goes in the “Workshops / List my workshops” section and in “Enter a co-animator code”

The workshops can be repeated two or more times during the school (the number of repetition is likely to be modulated up or down).

The workshops will be selected by the organizing committee.

The workshop team is at your disposal for any further information and can be reached at the following address
