Do you want to learn how to derive qualitative and quantitative insights on molecular mechanisms in cells and developing organisms? Then join ‘Advanced fluorescence in imaging techniques’, a hands-on course for researchers using light microscopy equipment to solve biological problems at the cellular and molecular level in vivo.
This course covers lectures and practical demonstrations in SEM and TEM techniques. The contents include principles of focused electron and ion beam microscopy, specimen preparation for EM imaging and advancements in electron microscopy such as high-resolution TEM, scanning TEM, electron diffraction, elemental analysis and in-situ electron microscopy.
The target group is PhD students from all subjects where digital image analysis (IA) is used as a research tool. No previous experience in IA is required from the course participants, but an interest in its potential as a tool in their own research is important. The course can be followed with a basic knowledge of mathematics (corresponding to upper‐ secondary level entry requirements) and basic computer skills.
