Introduction to Image Analysis with Fiji
Thu-Fri, Mar 12-13
Holt Conference Room, JGM & Bioinformatics Training Room, JMG
Automated microscopy technologies have amplified the volume and complexity of image data such that biologists must rely on computer scientists for solutions and software. Fiji provides a huge variety of advanced image analysis solutions and a friendly user interface for researchers to develop innovative, cutting-edge pipelines for biological image analysis. Users range from non-programmers to bioinformaticians and software engineers to professional computer science researchers. Biologists without programming skills can use Fiji to search for biologically relevant features (segmentation), to follow relevant objects across space and time (tracking) and to compare specimens through mapping to anatomical or cellular digital atlases. Those skilled in programming can use scripting languages in Fiji to build custom image-processing pipelines. Fiji is a distribution of the popular open-source software ImageJ focused on biological-image analysis. Fiji is Just ImageJ.
In this workshop, we will introduce basic concepts of image analysis and intermediate workflows using Fiji. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to automate the bulk your image analysis, making it faster, more consistent and reproducible.
Prerequisites: None. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
