Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy - Fall 2017
Fluorescence microscopy is an essential technique to probe the inner workings of cells and tissues. Yet, few students have a clear grasp of how a fluorescent microscope works and how to quantitatively analyze the large data sets it generates. You will learn ‘hands on’ the inner workings of fluorescent microscopes, how to set up and acquire fluorescent images using microscopes, and how to quantitatively analyze image data using FIJI (ImageJ) software. Graduate students will gain confidence in the acquisition and quantitative analysis of their own image data.
