Biomolecular interaction analysis 2018: From molecules to cells

29 October–3 November 2018 | Porto, Portugal


A comprehensive and integrated characterization of molecular interactions is key to the understanding of life processes at a molecular level. Due to their complexity, the study of binding events require the gathering of data from multiple methods in order to build a complete picture of their function.This EMBO Practical Course aims at a multidisplinary approach to the study of molecular interactions from and in biological systems, integrating biochemical/biophysical methodologies with live microscopy techniques.

2nd Edition Introduction to digital image analysis with ImageJ / Fiji

23-26 September, 2018 | i3S, Porto, Portugal


With the advent of the digital era, nowadays images are multidimensional numerical data that can be processed and analyzed quantitatively to extract more information. ImageJ/Fiji open source software(imagej.net/) is a powerful tool available to process and analyze digital images. Moreover, it also allows the automation of image analysis with custom macros and plugins. With this course, we intend to give a general introduction to ImageJ/Fiji, show how to use it to extract quantitative data and how to write simple macros. This course is focused on the analysis of microscopy images but is targeted to all people engaged in research, that wants to start using ImageJ/Fiji for image analysis in general.
