Course description This intensive course combines theory with practice and will provide participants with in-depth and up-to-date expertise on advanced cytometry and microscopic imaging techniques. It is sure to be invaluable to everyone who is planning to complete a research internship. The course is divided into two parts: cytometry and microscopy. The cytometry lectures will teach students the principles of fluorescence cytometry analysis and sorting, imaging flow cytometry, and mass cytometry. Students will also be required to attend a demonstration session on cytometry and will learn all about essential data analysis methods (from multicolour cytometry to multidimensional data analysis) through tutorials and work group sessions. This part of the course will include an exciting lecture on the emerging field of single-cell genomics. The second part of the course will focus on light microscopy on live and fixed specimens, confocal laser scanning microscopy, electron microscopy, and light-sheet microscopy. Special attention will be given to image analysis in a tutorial on ImageJ and other commonly used software applications.
