AU Bioimaging Core Facility provides state-of-the-art equipment for a wide range of light microscopy applications. Through personal training and assistance, we support users in performing professional bioimaging efficiently.  
All systems are designed to cover most bioimaging applications with a strong focus on meeting future requirements and minimizing complexity for users. We focus on microscopy knowledge sharing and offer access to advanced bioimaging software, our expertise in image data analysis, and project based microscopy education.    

Image Processing & Analysis Course: Advanced Imaging Center, Janelia Research Campus, at Aarhus University.

April 20, 2020 - April 23, 2020

 (Deadline: March 23, 2020)

Aim and Learning outcomes: The goal of this hands-on course is to survey the fundamentals of how image pixel data can be used to extract biologically meaningful information. Participants will install Fiji and will be given ample opportunity to work on actual images for truly hands-on learning experience and also learn to write macros to speed up analysis. Opportunity to discuss individual projects will also be available.

Content: Lecture and Laboratory Topics include: Image Processing: Fundamentals of digital images, the arts and science behind image processing and the ethics of knowing when not to alter an image, morphometry and object segmentation, Fourier transformation in image processing, the concept of color display and how color affects data interpretation.

Image Analysis: Volumetric and intensity measurement, co-localization analysis, the meaning and application of various co-localization indices, quantitative ratiometric image analysis, particle tracking, analysis of protein dynamics and movement. Writing of macros.
