The course gives an introduction into the field of microscopy image analysis for cell biology and the use of software tools for automated processing of image data. Basic methods for computer-based analysis of microscopy images are introduced such as image preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction, classification, and colocalization. Concepts of software platforms and workflow systems for automating image analysis pipelines with focus on ImageJ and Galaxy and their use for analyzing cell microscopy image data are also taught. The course consists of lectures and practical sessions. Participants should bring their laptops for the practical sessions. The target group are researchers with a background in biology or medicine that need to analyze their data and have little or no experience in automated image analysis.

Learning goals:
- Introduction into cell microscopy image analysis
- Application of software tools for automated analysis of image data

Basic knowledge in using software tools for image analysis is helpful but not mandatory 

Computer-based image analysis, image preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction, classification, colocalization

ImageJ, Galaxy
