Overview

Improve your image analysis knowledge and ability to analyse your images

The use of automatic image analysis in the biological sciences has increased significantly in recent years, especially with automated image capture and the rise of phenotyping.

This online course will help improve your understanding of image analysis methods, and improve your practical skills and ability to apply the techniques to your images.

You will explore the process of image acquisition, through to segmenting regions, counting objects and tracking movement. Importantly, we’ll also try to highlight what to watch out for when using different image analysis approaches.

This course is designed for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in biological sciences.

For context, I am a cell biologist with experience of using / acquiring images with a microscope but with little prior use of image analysis methods. I was interested in this course as my project is moving in a direction where I thought the ability to quantify and correlate features of images might become useful, and this is certainly a good course to get started on image analysis.

The course is beginner-friendly, walks the learner through the basics of image analysis / image acquisition, followed by an introduction to image analysis and the various things to bear in mind. As ima…
