Image Analysis Methods for Biologists

Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,

Overview

Improve your image analysis knowledge and ability to analyse your images

The use of automatic image analysis in the biological sciences has increased significantly in recent years, especially with automated image capture and the rise of phenotyping.

This online course will help improve your understanding of image analysis methods, and improve your practical skills and ability to apply the techniques to your images.

You will explore the process of image acquisition, through to segmenting regions, counting objects and tracking movement. Importantly, we’ll also try to highlight what to watch out for when using different image analysis approaches.

This course is designed for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in biological sciences.
