Detailed information about the course
Plant Imaging: Advanced Light Microscopy
27-28 January 2022
Dr. Sylvain Loubéry, UNIGE
Dr. Sylvain Loubéry, Plant Imaging Unit, UNIGE
The course will focus on light microscopy, and the objective of the course is two-fold:
- to acquire or strengthen basic knowledge of the most common methods of plant optical imaging (including sample preparation and staining);
The course includes three lectures on basic and advanced fluorescence microscopy, sample preparation, and image analysis.
In parallel, hands-on sessions will be held on fluorescence microscopy and on image analysis.
For the hands-on microscopy parts, participants will be grouped by 3 and the groups will rotate between different microscopes. During the image analysis hands-on, participants will work on image analysis and Fiji; this will be done on laptops brought by the participants. The practicals will take place at the Bioimaging Center of UniGE.
The participants are expected to have prior experience with microscopy (and preferably with confocal microscopy).
