BioImage Analysis for High Content Screening
25-28 May 2021 | ONLINE COURSE
i3S - Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde, Universidade do Porto
High Content Screening generates a massive amount of image-based data in the biosciences field. Images contain diverse and valuable quantifiable data, however, many researchers lack the knowledge to extract those data in a practical, fast and repetitive way. Fundamentally practical, in this modular course, participants will get acquainted with several open-source image analysis software (ImageJ/Fiji, ilastik, CellProfiler, CellProfiler Analyst, Cytoscape and IDEAS®) designed to deal with large amounts of images. Experimental data will be used as datasets for image segmentation and quantification.
This course is organized in modules. Therefore, participants are free to choose the image analysis tools more convenient to their own work.
Target Audience: PhD students and junior and senior researchers
- High content image analysis
- Image segmentation and quantification
- Batch analysis
- Open-source image analysis software
Course Organizers: André Maia and María Gómez Lázaro
