Course Description: Imaging is an essential technique for visualizing and recording biological structures and processes. Over the past decade, important advances have been made in biological imaging techniques, especially in areas such as fluorescence biosensors, super-resolution microscopy, and light-sheet microscopy. Driven by these advances, bioimage informatics emerges as a new technological area for computational analysis and understanding of biological image data. This short course aims to provide a brief introduction to the concepts, techniques, and applications of bioimage informatics. It consists of three lectures:

 

Lecture I: Basic concepts and techniques (Aug 10th, 9:30am-11:30am)

 

Lecture II: Tracking and analysis of spatiotemporal cell dynamics (Aug 12th, 9:30am-11:30am)

 

Lecture III: Applications in quantitative biology (Aug 14th, 9:30am-11:30am)

 

The lectures will be supplemented by a collection of selected literature on bioimage informatics, which can be downloaded from http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/geyang/BI_ShortCourse/

 

Pre-requisite: This short course is developed for senior and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds, including computational and systems biology, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, biological sciences, and biophysics. It is based on a one-semester course on the same topic the instructor teaches at Carnegie Mellon University.
