GBI-ABiS International Training Course for Bioimage Analysis

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. Young investigators, such as Ph.D. students and postdoc, as well as assistant professors and imaging facilities technical staff are encouraged to apply. A limited number of travel grants will be awarded to applicants selected on the basis of their qualifications and fitness to the purpose of the course.

Date   Wednesday, October 31 – Sunday, November 4, 2018
    (Oct 31,Joint symposium with Resonance Bio)
Venue   Okinawa Institute Of Science And Technology Graduate University (OIST)
    (1919-1 Tancha, Onna-son, Kunigami-gun, Okinawa, Japan 904-0495)

Course Program (Language:English)

 November 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.

 November 2-3
We will introduce users to the free open-source image analysis program CellProfiler and its companion data exploration program CellProfiler Analyst. We will show how CellProfiler can be used to analyse a variety of types of imaging experiments. We will also briefly discuss the basic principles of supervised machine learning with CellProfiler Analyst in order to score complex and subtle phenotypes.

 November 4
We will run a study design and data clinic for participants to discuss their experiments. End at lunchtime.
