SLIM workshops

 

SLIM staff run a variety of workshops across a number of subject areas. 

Our image analysis workshops using Fiji are particularly well recieived (see a wordcloud of feedback to the right). 

Please click on the relevant heading below for fee information and details regarding registration.

The next workshops are scheduled for March 7th/8th ("Introduction to Image Analysis in Fiji") and March 15th ("Introduction to Macro Programming in Fiji").

Both workshops take place in The Medical School, QMC, computer room A36 (located in the Greenfield Medical Librabry - you will need your library card for access).

All days run from 09:30 until 16:30. There will be an hour long lunch break and shorter breaks during the morning and afternoon sessions. 

You’ll be provided with a printed handbook for you to take away, but I suggest you also bring a note paper and a pen. Note that we will be using the computers in the room so you do not need to bring a laptop.

(SoLS staff and students) "Introduction to Image Analysis in Fiji."

This is a  2-day course specifically for staff, postdocs or PhD students based in the School of Life Sciences.

This workshop is suitable for anyone acquiring microscopy data as part of their research, no prior knowledge is necessary or assumed. The course is focused towards the analysis of fluorescence data, but the principles are transferable to any type of imaging. Both theory and practical components will be included. 

The topics covered are outlined below;-         

  • Installation, setup, loading and saving images.         
  • Image manipulation.          
  • Object Segmentation.    
  • Quantitative analysis (including colocalisation).

Places are limited to 15 people, with two trainers.


There is a charge of £50 to attend this 2-day course. To register for this workshop please email Chris Gell  with:

  1. Your name and Dept
  2. Your supervisor
  3. Your UoN project/grant code

(Places will only be allocated to those who provide the above information and on a first come first served basis.) 

 
(SoLS staff and students) "Introduction to Macro Programming in Fiji"

This is a 1-day course aimed at users already experienced in “manual” Fiji-based image analysis, who would like an introduction into the automation of tasks and analysis. The course is focused towards the analysis of fluorescence data, but the principles are transferable to any type of imaging. 

Prior knowledge of Fiji is essential, no prior knowledge of programming is necessary or assumed. (Attendance on the “Introduction to Image Analysis in Fiji” workshop would be a sufficient prerequisite).

Some programming theory will be given where necessary, but the workshop will be focused on using Fiji macros and macro function extensions to solve actual problems. 

There is a charge of £25 to attend this 1-day course. To register for this workshop please email Chris Gell with:

  1. Your name and Dept
  2. Your supervisor
  3. Your UoN project/grant code

(Places will only be allocated to those who provide the above information and on a first come first served basis.)
