Särskild behörighet
Kursens syfte Fluorescence microscopy is for most researchers an essential tool. Lately, this technique developed more and more from 'simply' acquiring good looking images towards complex, high content imaging techniques.
High content imaging is defined by the large number of image data generated either from live cell imaging, or microscopy on fixed samples. Examples are z-stack imaging, cell migration, protein dynamics, multi-position imaging, tiling & stitching, whole mount imaging, and automated image acquisitions in screening assays. The purpose of this course is to make the participants familiar with all of these high content techniques; from acquisition to analysis and presentation.
Kursens lärandemål After passing the complete course, the participants will be familiar with diverse high content fluorescence microscopy applications. They will be competent in designing and performing experiments involving high content fluorescence microscopy. The participants will be able to analyse their data using an image analysis software, and how to present the data in a scientific format.
Kursens innehåll Basic principles of fluorescence microscopy. Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy: z-stack, tiling & stitching. Live Cell Imaging: long term imaging, protein dynamics (FLIP/FRAP). Automated Image Acquisition Microscope: multi-well imaging, screening. Hands-on sessions with diverse high content imaging experiments. Image analysis: ImageJ/CellProfiler. Lectures and workshops. Poster presentation
Arbetsformer The pedagogic learning activities in the course consist of lectures, research seminars, hands-on experience at the microsopes/imaging, group discussions, experimental design, data processing and poster presentation.
Obligatoriska moment All activities (lectures, research seminars, microscope sessions, group discussions, data processing and poster presentations) are compulsory. If students are unable to attend they have to discuss with course organizer how this can be compensated. Compensation of microscopy sessions is not possible.
Examination There will be 2 examinations. In the end of the first week, there will be an assessment of written versions of experimental designs involving high content imaging experiments and image analysis. In the second week, the participants will present a scientific poster showing the results of their high content microscopy experiments performed during that week. The poster presentations will be attended by course participants, lecturers, course assistants, and others that are interested.
