The course will be an introduction to image processing and analysis, with a focus on biologically relevant examples. The attendees will learn the fundamentals of image analysis including how to do basic Macro programming in Fiji (ImageJ) for automated batch analysis of images, use different software solutions for image analysis, and will be introduced to visualisation and explorative data analysis after extraction of numerical data from images.

The teachers are Simon Nørrelykke and Szymon Stoma (IDA-ScopeM, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland), and Chong Zhang (SIMBioSys, University Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain).

The course is suitable not only for beginners in image analysis with no experience, but also for those who want to extend their knowledge of basic principles and more specialised tools.

We are pleased to announce the 5th EMBL Course for Bioimage Data Analysis to be held from Sunday, 14 May – Saturday , 20 May 2017. The deadline for application is March 15th, 2017.

This course will focus on computational methods for analysing images of proteins, cells and tissues, to boost the learning process of participants who have an immediate need to analyze images in their own research. For this, the course extends from basic foundations of image processing and programming to the actual implementation of workflows using scripting in ImageJ macro and MATLAB languages. We aim to gather expert knowledge to organize a world-leading course for bioimage analysis in the fields of cell & developmental biology, biochemistry and biophysics. A report written by a student in 2014 could give you some idea about the course.

The course will take place in Heidelberg, Germany at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre. Registration and motivation letter deadline is March 15, 2017. Please visit our course website for more details.
We look forward to welcoming you to Heidelberg, Germany.

Correlative Microscopy (CLEM) takes an increasing value in scientific research.

The second France BioImaging course on correlative microscopies is jointly organized by Institut Jacques Monod, Institut Pasteur and Institut Curie.

The first day (free access, registration required) will be composed of a conference series from national and international speakers about the latest CLEM technologies as well as by participants who will follow the practical session in the following 4 days.

Practical training will be organized in 2 sessions of 2 days for 3 groups between the 3 organizing institutes (12 positions available).

The 2 sessions will be chosen among the 3 available:
– EMPACT2 CLEM / Tokuyasu (Institut Jacques Monod)
– Live Cell to HPF, Quick Freeze Substitution/fluorescence on sections and eC-CLEM alignment (Institut Curie)
– Live Cell to FIB-SEM / Cryo-CLEM (Institut Pasteur)

Registration on the FBI website, dead-line 31 March 2017

First day: free entrance
Practical sessions: 250.00 euros in total, selection on application form.
