Coronavirus information for participants

The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.


We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.


Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.


More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

Course Overview

This is a blended learning course on Deep Learning for Image Analysis, consisting of 3 online sessions with associated hands-on exercises and a week-long onsite session at EMBL Heidelberg.

Audience

This course is aimed at both core facility staff and research scientists.

Prerequisites for this workshop are programming skills in Python and ideally Tensorflow, Keras or Pytorch as well as basic knowledge of machine learning theory.

Participants should provide an outline of one image analysis task they would like to work on during the on-site part of the course. Neural networks have been successfully applied to various medical and biological imaging modalities including PALM/STORM, light sheet fluorescence microscopy, high-throughput microscopy, electron microscopy, X-ray tomography. However, they require observation-outcome-pairs for training. Ideally, you will be provide annotated images for network training during the course.

Learning Outcomes

After this course you should be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of machine learning methods suitable for image analysis
  • Advise users/colleagues in strategies to obtain ground truth
  • Train and use a CNN for a bioimage analysis task studied in the course
  • Perform simple quality control on the results
