EMBL Course for Bioimage Data Analysis 2017


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 5th EMBL Course for Bioimage Data Analysis to be held from Sunday, 14 May – Saturday , 20 May 2017. The deadline for application is March 15th, 2017. We hope that this short notice is not too short.

This course will focus on computational methods for analysing images of proteins, cells and tissues, to boost the learning process of participants who have an immediate need to analyze images in their own research. For this, the course extends from basic foundations of image processing and programming to the actual implementation of workflows using scripting in ImageJ macro and MATLAB languages. We aim to gather expert knowledge to organize a world-leading course for bioimage analysis in the fields of cell & developmental biology, biochemistry and biophysics. A report written by a student in 2014 could give you some idea about the course.

The course will take place in Heidelberg, Germany at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre. Registration and motivation letter deadline is March 15, 2017. Please visit our course website for more details:


You are welcome to circulate this announcement to interested members and groups within your institution. For your interest, we published a textbook in 2016 based on the previous courses. E-books (PDF, EPUB and PRC) can be downloaded free of charge. Please access the textbook through the following webpage.


We look forward to welcoming you to Heidelberg, Germany.
