Course on High Throughput Screening and Image Analysis for Biosciences @ i3S

27-31 May 2019 | i3S, Porto 


Fundamentally practical, this course aims introducing the participants in experimental design, image acquisition, image, and data analysis for high throughput (HT) experiments. These are essential skills when generating a massive amount of imaged-based data in the biosciences field. Lectures will be given by specialists in the field and participants will learn how to use state of the art technology for HT experimentation and open-source software for image and data analysis. Attendants will get acquainted with use of automated liquid handling equipment and high content (HC) imagers such as IN Cell Analyzer (HCS microscope) and ImageStream (imaging flow cytometer). Interaction with HTS/HCS specialists will be fostered due to the restricted amount of participants.






Registration until 15th April 2019 | Payment deadline: 22nd April

i3S members – 180€ (lunch not included)

General registration - 250€ (lunch included)

 MATLAB Course 2019

Introduction to data analysis and image processing with MATLAB - 5th Ed. @ i3S

25-27 March 2019 | i3S, Porto


Quantification is an essential component in every scientific domain, and the ability to extract more information from the data is a fundamental asset. This is an introductory "hands-on" course where the concepts and techniques will be explored directly in the MATLAB environment. MATLAB is a well-established tool in scientific and technical computing, with key advantages such as being extremely versatile/powerful and easy to learn. This course is especially suited for people engaged in research wanting to start using MATLAB in the context of scientific data analysis and image processing (quantification). Participants are invited to bring their own data and an analysis problem of interest to be addressed in the course (as a project), with the help of the tutors.



Lecturer: Paulo de Castro Aguiar, i3S / INEB

TA: Ana Filipa Gerós, i3S / INEB



Prerequisites: None – previous experience with MATLAB is not required

Participants are asked to bring their laptops (a MATLAB trial version is available)
