Bioimaging 0

In this course you will learn how an image is formed in a microscope. You will learn the fundamentals of microscope operation. You will compare different contrasting techniques on biological samples and practice techniques to characterize the specification of an instrument (e.g. resolution limit and chromatic aberration correction). You will learn to image fluorescent samples by widefield and confocal microscopy. The course takes place in the labs of the BIC.

Schedule: 3 days, from 9:00 to 16:00.

Place is limited to 6 students.

Bioimaging I

The Course "Bioimaging I" for members of the Graduate School "Chemical Biology" is a practical course on advanced imaging techniques: Confocal, Spinning Disk, TIRF, etc.

In this course you will learn how different fluorescence microscopy techniques can be applied to various biological samples, from single cells to C. elegans, to answer scientific questions. You will  practice techniques ranging from 3D-imaging, deconvolution to photomanipulation. The course takes place in the labs of the BIC.

Schedule: 3 days, from 9:00 to 17:00

Registration via the KoRS-CB webpage.

Frontiers in Bioimaging

This course will cover super resolution microscopy techniques (structured illumination, localization microscopy) and high content screeinign approaches by lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on. Introductory lectures for the different topics are followed by demonstration and hands-on sessions at the instruments. Also sample preparation is introduced. Students are welcome to bring along their own sample, in which case they should consult with Dr. Martin Stöckl.

The course will take place at the BIC facility in from Oct 21 to Oct 23 2019.

The course is open for up to 6 participants
