EXTENDED APPLICATION DEADLINE –  1 June 2018

 OVERVIEW

High-throughput or high-content microscopy screening are powerful tools in the fields of systems biology and drug discovery. These approaches rely on the acquisition of extensive imaging datasets coupled to automated image analysis routines in order to describe a given biological phenotype. As a screening tool, high-throughput microscopy is typically used to gather phenotypic data arising from the treatment of cells/tissues/organisms with hundreds/thousands/millions of different siRNAs/shRNAs/compounds, as well as other experimental conditions.

The workshop will provide participants with knowledge on the design, implementation and analysis of high-throughput microscopy-based screens, as well as hands-on experience in performing a screening experiment.

 

WHO SHOULD APPLY? PhD students, Post-Docs, technicians and independent researchers with prior experience in fluorescence microscopy who wish to specialize in high-throughput microscopy.
