Comment

Kurset kan ikke tages hvis man allerede har taget BMB825. 

The
course has limited entry with a maximum of 18 students. The following 4
criterias are taken into consideration when seats are assigned.

  1. Students with the most ECTS from their master
  2. Students who are accepted conditionally on the master 
  3. Students who follows master courses concurrent with their bachelor programme
  4. Bachelor students

If the score is even lots are drawn.

The
academic enviroments at the Faculty of Science manages
the prioritisation and at waiting list is established and will then be
made aware from the faculty. The waiting list will not be transferred to
the following year.

In order to keep the assigned seat you need
to attend the first course day or notify the teacher, otherwise the seat
is given to the next student from the waiting list.

01015201(former UVA) is identical with this course description.

Aim

It is the goal of the course to teach the students general principles of
fluorescence and light microscopy as well as teach principles behind
advanced fluorescence and imaging techniques as well as a short
introduction to image processing. There will be practical demonstrations
and hands on exercises on all topics. The course is a five day
intensive course taking place within one week.

In relation to the competence profile of the degree it is the explicit focus of the course to:

  • Give the competence to Identify the “method of choice” for analysis of a given biological sample
  • Give skills to perform image analysis using advanced microscopy instrumentation
  • Give knowledge and understanding of the strengths and limitations of modern techniques in microscopy

Statement of aims

The learning objective of the course is that the student demonstrates the ability to:

  • Understand the basics of microscopy and optical bioimaging.
  • Discuss strengths and limitations of modern techniques in microscopy.
  • Identify the “method of choice” for analysis of a given biological sample
  • Perform image analysis using advanced microscopy instrumentation 
  • Present scientific results in an oral seminar given in English
  • Evaluate scientific results in the original research literature

Content

The following main topics are contained in the course:
  • Wide field microscopy
  • Laser scanning single-photon confocal microscopy
  • Two-photon microscopy
  • Spinning disk confocal microscopy
  • Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)
  • Raster Image Correlation Spectroscopy (RICS)
  • Fluorescent Lifetime Imaging microscopy (FLIM)
  • kICS/PALM (k‐Space Image Correlation Spectroscopy/ photoactivated localization microscopy) 
  • Coherent anti Raman scattering microscopy (CARS) 
  • Stimulation emission depletion microscopy (STED)
  • Introduction to image analyses using FIJI and Huygens
