Course on High Throughput Screening and Image Analysis for BioSciences (Portugal)


#1

HIGH THROUGHPUT SCREENING AND IMAGE ANALYSIS FOR BIOSCIENCES

June 18th-22nd, 2018 | i3S, Porto

Fundamentally practical, this course aims introducing the participants in experimental design, image acquisition, image and data analysis for high throughput (HT) experiments. These are essential skills when generating massive amount of imaged-based data in the biosciences field. Lectures will be given by specialists in the field and participants will learn how to use state of the art technology for HT experimentation and open-source software for image and data analysis. Attendants will get acquainted with use of automated liquid handling equipment and high content (HC) imagers such as IN Cell Analyzer (HCS microscope) and ImageStream (imaging flow cytometer). Interaction with HTS/HCS specialists will be fostered due to the restricted amount of participants.
