Using CellProfiler and CellProfiler Analyst to analyse biological images

CellProfiler

Description

Microscopy experiments have proven to be a powerful means of generating information-rich data for biological applications. From small-scale microscopy experiments to time-lapse movies and high-throughput screens, automatic image analysis is more objective and quantitative and less tedious than visual inspection.

This course will introduce users to the free open-source image analysis program CellProfiler and its companion data exploration program CellProfiler Analyst. We will show how CellProfiler can be used to analyse a variety of types of imaging experiments. We will also briefly discuss the basic principles of supervised machine learning with CellProfiler Analyst in order to score complex and subtle phenotypes.

 

Prerequisites

  • Researchers who want to extract quantitative information from microscopy images
  • Basic knowledge of fluorescence microscopy and digital image acquisition assumed.
  • No computational expertise is required.
