NEUBIAS - Training School for Bioimage Analysts

Oeiras, Portugal

Feb. 12-15, 2017


The aim of the course is at increasing the knowledge and the technical capability of bioimage analysts for improving their analysis quality. We expect that the participants are already fluent with at least one programming / scripting language and working on bioimage analysis in their daily life. Our plan is to ask developers of various image analysis tools to tell us how to access API of those tools, and to experience construction of workflows using available resources. 

The course has four pillars:

  1. Tools & Spirit
    • NEUBIAS activities and bioimage analysts
    • Overview of bioimage analysis tools
    • Learning Resources
    • Code management, deployment, collaborations
  2. Coding and Libraries
    • In depth access to bioimage analysis API
    • e.g. ImageJ Imglib2 Ops, Imaris XT scripting
  3. Designing Workflows
    • Learning constructions of cutting edge workflows
  4. Algorithms and Benchmarking
    • Introduction to advanced algorithms for image analysis
    • Benchmarking of algorithms and workflows

Through this course, we are not only aiming at sharing bioimage analysis techniques, but also to enhance and strengthen the communication among bioimage analysts.

NEUBIAS - Training School for Early Career Investigators

Oeiras, Portugal

Feb. 12 – 15th, 2017



  • Principles, techniques and ethics of digital image processing
  • Enhancement & processing of bioimages for analysis and publication
  • Building practical workflows with free GUI tools to analyse 2D, 3D & time-lapse bioimages
    (using trainees’ own images requiring eg. object segmentation and densitometry, spot detection & tracking or filament/tube tracing)
  • Introduction to workflow automation (record and reuse commands/pipelines)
    • NOTE – the focus of the ECI TS is on workflows with GUI tools, so it is not the ideal course for researchers who are already advanced into image analysis or are interested mostly in learning scripting or ij macro language! NeuBIAS will organize other Training Schools with that emphasis.
  • Extracting and validating quantitative numerical data from bioimages/data mining
  • Solve your own IA problem, create your workflows, explore different tools!

Euro-BioImaging is starting Interim Operation!

European life science researchers now have the possibility to use state-of-the-art imaging technologies, which they do not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners.
