Introduction to Bioimage Analysis
Microscopy is a key technology driving biological discovery. Nowadays, microscopy based scientific findings must be substantiated by quantitative image analysis. The discipline concerned with such quantification of biological microscopy images is called bioimage analysis. Dr. Christian Tischer walks us through the main concepts of a typical bioimage analysis workflow. He explains how to quantitatively interpret the content of microscopy images and how to automatically detect objects in images and derive object based measurements. He also emphasizes the importance of visual inspection and quality control of automated image analysis. Finally, he presents an overview of current bioimage analysis tools and communities.
