UCI-CCBS: Big Data Image Processing & Analysis Workshop Course–UC Irvine (please share)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

UC Irvine’s Center for Complex Biological Systems is pleased to announce the annual short course in Big Data Image Processing & Analysis (BigDIPA), September 17-21, 2018.

This 1-week workshop course is geared towards graduate students, postdocs, faculty and industry professionals with research interests in navigating, manipulating and extracting information from “Big Data” image sources. The course is designed to cover the complete “vertical integration” of the image data to knowledge pipeline.

The course will provide a mix of strategies for dealing with biological/biomedical big data image sources, using examples of image analyses drawn from advanced cell fluorescence microscopy techniques and neurobiology to highlight fundamental concepts and skills. Processing and analysis techniques will be generalizable and relevant to other model systems and biomedical input data sources.
