Dear Colleagues,

the Institute of Molecular Genetics ASCR and the Czechoslovak Microscopy Society would like to invite you to the 5-day course “Processing and analysis of microscopic images in biomedicine” intended for PhD students and junior researchers. The course will be held at the Institute of Molecular Genetics ASCR in Prague in April 16-20, 2018.

The course covers the basics in image data acquisition, processing and analysis including modern methods of stereology. Apart from a theoretical background, the emphasis is put on practical experience, the participants will learn how to use free software package Fiji ( for basic or more advanced analyses, how to evaluate co-localizations, analyse data from FRAP and electron microscopy data, how to track particles in images or segment objects. They will solve difficult segmentation tasks by a trainable algorithm in ilastik free software ( and learn how to improve acquired data by deconvolution in Huygens software ( There will be also lessons with the Imaris (, including practical exercises on corporate computers led by a professional expert from the company.

For more information and link to the registration form, please, visit the course website ( The course follows the Microscopy methods in biomedicine, the previous attendance of this course, however, is not necessary.

The course will be taught in English.
