Image Analysis Call4help on 14th of feb!

The image analysis help you have always dreamt of, totally for free!!! 😱😱😱

Deadline 6th of feb!

First SciLifeLab BioImage Informatics call4help zoom session

On the 14th February 2019, 10:00 – 12:00 the SciLifeLab BioImage Informatics Facility is organizing an online support session on BioImage Analysis (“call4help” session).

How does it work?

Each selected participant gets a 15 min slot. You have 5 min to present your problem. It is mainly about showing the scientific context, representative input images, describing desired output measurements, and giving a brief statement about what was done before. The remaining 10 min we will brainstorm together on the possible solution(s), discuss tools, techniques, etc.

The Bioimage Informatics Facility can provide further support, if needed. We are happy to announce that Sylvie Le Guyader, Live Cell Imaging Facility, KI, Huddinge, is joining the session as microscopy expert.

How can I participate?

Step1:

Prepare a presentation – use this template for your presentation:

Step2:

a) Upload your presentation to this google drive:

b) AND send an e-mail to anna.klemm@it.uu.se until 6th February 2019.

Step 3:

Join this zoom-session.

If your problem is selected for presentation, you will get a time-slot of 15 minutes within the session (14th February 2019, 10:00 – 12:00). If not, you are welcome to join the discussion anyway!

What are the Deadlines

Call4Help format

The call4help format was initially developed by ScopeM, ETH Zürich.

Image analysis primer or more!

Registrations are open now for 2 fantastic ways to reach the stars with your image analysis:

Ready? Get set! Go! 🙂

LCI microscopy course vintage 2019! :)

The Live Cell Imaging facility is back with its intensive microscopy course! In 2018 we moved to a new building so there was no course but we will strike again in Jan-Feb 2019!!You will definitely learn tons at our course. Have a look at the program and judge for yourself.

As usual we run 2 courses in parallel:

#2870, 6 points, is the full course with all lectures, workshops, demos… This will run 22/jan-08 feb, 3 days/week 9:00-17:15.

#2871, 4.5 points, is the same minus some workshops and demos. This course will run at the same dates but 10:00-15:00.

The rest of the time is used for home assignments.

All lectures are open to the public without any registration so tell your colleagues!

Course applications are open from today and until the 15th of November. The full course (2870) has only 16 spots available so just go for it NOW! 🙂

 

More about RNA labeling

Yet another chance to try RNA labelling: The FENO facility, here in Flemingsberg, has purchased a machine to multiplex RNA scope. They will present it on the 16th of October. 🙂

Here is the announcement.

Clearing and expansion microscopy course at Scilife in September!

Expansion microscopy and clearing are fantastic tools for anyone who images thick (> 1 cell diameter) fixed samples. We are now lucky to have access to state of the art talks and hands-on workshops at Scilife in September. Register early not to be disappointed!

Please apply to Hans (first day) and David (second day) directly!

Neubias workshop for image analysis at the heart of Scotland!

Here is where to register for the next Neubias, the European Image Analysis school! Learn how to build your own image analysis pipeline with expert help! 🙂

Only a few days left to register!

Learn about Expansion microscopy

Next wednesday morning, David Unnersjö-Jess from KTH/Scilife will give a talk at the Live cell imaging facility (9:30, DNA seminar room), about a new and exciting aspect of microscopy: Expansion microscopy.

This is a technique where one ‘blows up’ the sample while keeping all proteins in place and at the same relative distance from each other. The sample is simply ‘inflated’. One can then take images of it with a normal microscope but the resulting image give a much higher resolution than normal microscopy.

After the seminar, David will have an open discussion with anyone who would like to try the technique.

Microscopy workshop in Stockholm

Our infamous Hans Blom from the Advanced Light Microscopy facility at Scilife, is organizing a workshop at the end of this month.

Light sheet, super resolution and FCS on the menu, talks and demos.

Have a look at the program. 🙂

How to kill your fear of image analysis?

Neubias is a European effort to get biologists comfortable with image analysis. conferences (Hungary, Jan 2018), courses, facility staff training, ‘biologists meet analysts’ meetings… They have it all!

Now this is your chance to learn and get help to analyze images for your microscopy project! Check the Neubias conference and courses in Hungary!

And if you would like to work with microscopy in the future, remember to join the ELMI (European Light Microscopy Initiative) so you get all their job announcements! 🙂

Try your sample on the Leica light sheet microscope!

We are delighted to host the Leica light sheet system, 25-26th January!

Have a look at the cool videos they have on their website! Check here for details on how to:

  • Come and listen to the Leica Lightsheet seminar January 25th 11:00-12:00, Red seminar room (how to find)
  • Book a private demo to image your own sample with the Leica specialist (January 25th and 26th).
