Online-Introduction to Image Analysis with ImageJ/Fiji

02.Nov. – 6.Nov. 2020

This November the Biooptics facility invites you to a five-day introductory course on Image Analysis using ImageJ/Fiji. The course will be held online via Microsoft Teams.

ImageJ is an open source, community based image analysis software and a powerful tool for handling your (microscopy) image data.

In this course, we will give an overall introduction to the creation, properties and handling of digital images. We will cover a range of basic processing tools to be used within an analysis pathway for obtaining relevant biological data. A mixture of theory and hands-on exercises will enable you to use ImageJ/Fiji for your own projects. Information on hints and pitfalls will be given along the way.

This is a beginner’s course, no prior knowledge is needed.

Schedule: The course will be from Monday, Nov 2nd, to Friday, Nov 6th. Each day it will go from 9:15 am to 2:15 pm, with a 1h break (see attached schedule)

Application:  Please apply by signing up in the doodle ( Also note that full attendance to the entire course program is expected.

What you need: A computer with a good internet connection is required. A microphone for audio connection is not essential but beneficial. After registration you will receive a download link for the Fiji software and all course files. The basic tools we use in this course are implemented in the Fiji-version the IT is providing. Additional plugins are easily installed on PC. On Mac you might need special admin rights and therefore the help of IT.
