Teledyne Photometrics will be hosting a Remote Learning Workshop. This is a interactive workshop, covering basic principles of scientific imaging (sensitivity, resolution, quantum efficiency, sources of noise, etc.) and an introduction to camera technology (CCD, EMCCD, sCMOS, back-illuminated sensors, etc.) with a live camera demonstration of these principles (time permitting). This workshop will also allow researchers to understand which camera specifications are important for specific imaging applications.

Digital images are scientific data, with many of the same strengths and weaknesses as other types of instrument-acquired information. Unfortunately, scientists rarely receive formal training in how to appropriately work with image data. This can lead to image processing mistakes or the use of unscientific folklore which has been handed down as knowledge. As problematic as these kinds of errors may be for science, it is when the line is crossed from “honest error” to fraud that is of major concern for the entire scientific community.

The Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Farms has opened applications for a Bootcamp Course "Optical Imaging Across Biological Length Scales: From Nanometers to Millimeters". The 12-day Bootcamp Course will be held in November 2020. There is no registration fee, and Janelia will cover lodging and food costs for all participants. The Bootcamp Course will focus on biological query/hypothesis-driven utilization of technologies, training participants how to formulate quantitative experiments on various instruments.
