Description

ILS doctoral program is responsible for the course. The course is elective.

By the end of the course students will have hands on experience from the most common light microscopy methods, which will help them get started with their own imaging projects. In addition, students will also be familiar with sample preparation and data analysis for the presented techniques.

By the end of the course students will have hands on experience from the most common light microscopy methods, which will help them get started with their own imaging projects. In addition, students will also be familiar with sample preparation and data analysis for the presented techniques.

The course consists of practical work on sample preparation, microscopy and image analysis. The covered topics include: sample preparation for light microscopy, wide-field and confocal microscopy, super-resolution microscopy (STED), live-cell imaging, FRAP, light-sheet microscopy, basic image analysis and deconvolution. In addition, the students write a report using the microscopy data obtained during the course.

Grade 0-5, based on performance in the practical experiments (50%) and report (50%)

The course requires prior theoretical knowledge in basic light microscopy techniques, such as ILS-111 “Imaging techniques in biological sciences”.
