Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Monday, 07 December 2015 @ 09:30

End: Wednesday, 09 December 2015 @ 17:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Target audience:
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

This course will focus on computational methods for analysing cellular images and extracting quantitative data from them. The aim of this course is to familiarise the participants with computational image analysis methodologies, and to provide hands-on training in running quantitative analysis pipelines.

On day 1 we will introduce principles of image processing and analysis, giving an overview of commonly used algorithms through a series of talks and practicals based on Fiji, an extensible open source software package.

On day 2, we will focus on machine learning and computer vision for the analysis of images in cell biology. We will introduce the methodology in a series of lectures and show their application in the hands-on session. These practical sessions will be based on CellCognition, a tool for the analysis of live cell imaging data.

On day 3, we will describe the open Icy platform developed at the Institut Pasteur. Icy is a next-generation, user-friendly software offering powerful acquisition, visualization, annotation and analysis algorithms for 5D bioimaging data, together with unique automation/scripting capabilities (notably via its graphical programming interface) and tight integration with existing software (e.g. ImageJ, Matlab, Micro-Manager).

The timetable can be found here.
