Workshops

We realise that using microscopy based techniques for science requires much more than access to the machine itself, it needs good guidance on designing the experiment, knowledge on how best to operate the machine and also demonstrations on how to process and analyse/interpret the data. As such we are continuing to develop workshops that we believe will be valuable for all researchers using our facilities.

Introductory Image Processing & Analysis

This is intended as an introduction to image processing and analysis with no prior knowledge required. It is based on real practical exercises aimed at familiarising you with ImageJ. Areas addressed include:

  • What is a digital image (pixels, bit-depth, look-up-tables, etc)
  • What processes are acceptable to perform on digital images before it becomes fraudulent.
  • Processing images and movies for publication and presentations
  • How many images do you need to take (Gentle review of statistics)
  • Simple threshold-based analysis for counting objects and measuring intensities.
  • *Other areas of processing and analysis by request

Colocalisation

Although with recent software measuring colocalization coefficients is a trivial task, it is a much more challenging to interpret their meaning or to know which values you should be using. With this in mind this workshop is largely focused on a mini review and explanation of the most useful readouts of colocalization and discussions about when they are to be used. We will also address how to correctly setup the microscope for colocalization experiments and end with some hands on examples using ImageJ plugins.
