EMBL Course: Fundamentals of Widefield and Confocal Microscopy and Imaging
11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Light microscopy is the most widely used form of microscopy for life science research. The correct handling of the microscope and optimising image quality (e.g. contrast, resolution) as well as experimental design according to different applications are crucial to obtain the best results. This course will provide the participants with an overview about the basics of microscopy (light and optics, contrast techniques and imaging). The confocal part will include multicolor, 3D and time lapse imaging as well as spectral imaging, photobleaching (FRAP, FLIP, FLAP) and photoactivation techniques. Basic image analysis tools including measurement functions, colocalisation and spectral unmixing as well as 3D/4D image processing will be covered, both in theory and practice. The course will combine lectures with intense daily hands-on practices followed by discussions.

EMBL Course: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing
23 Aug 2020 - 31 Aug 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Cryo-EM combined with image processing is currently undergoing what has been referred to as a “resolution revolution”, making it one of the most powerful techniques to address this challenge. It also has unique capabilities to obtain structural information in situ within complex environments, and to deal with heterogeneous samples. The methods are complex and under constant development, so in depth, advanced training of users is essential to ensure future users can adapt new technologies to expand into new areas and solve new biological problems. This course provides the theoretical and practical training covering the full breadth of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques in order develop novel image processing approaches.

EMBL Course: Gene Expression at Spatial Resolution
31 Aug 2020 - 04 Sep 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course will introduce participants to a new generation of a spatially resolved transcriptomics assay provided by 10x Genomics. Through the combination of state-of-the-art sequencing technology and high-resolution microscopy, 10x Genomics is enabling researchers to study gene expression of cells within their morphological context of an intact tissue section. Through both theoretical sessions, as well as extensive hands-on practical work, the participants will learn the entire workflow of sample preparation including cryosectioning of fresh-frozen tissue samples, optimisation of tissue fixation and permeabilisation, high-resolution microscopy and sequencing library preparation. Utilising the 10x Genomics Loupe Browser pipeline, the participants will also have hands-on training of spatial transcriptomics data analysis.
