Nanocourse: Imaging

In this nanocourse given by the microscopy facility team, you will learn theoretical and practical aspects of imaging and how to apply imaging for your research.

Please register for this course by emailing

At this year's nanocourse we will discuss with you the full range of an imaging process. In the basic part, we will cover sample preparation, concepts of image acquisition and processing. In the advanced part, we will discuss automation and analysis strategies, statistics and how these interact with each other within smart microscopy approaches. Finally, we will apply the acquired knowledge in a FIJI hackathon.

The workshop program will be composed of lectures, discussions and fun tasks by internal and external parts of the MPIMG Imaging Facility. We would like to encourage you to be an active part of the event and to participate accordingly.
