Simple UNIVIS registration is NOT necessarily a ticket for the course. In case of overbooking the head of the course will selcet people on the basis of career status and the demand on performing microscopic experiments.
Students with experience in light microscopy AND those who have a proven demand for their master/PhD-work will be preferentially selected.

LIMITED ATTENDANCE: 6 people


Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Live Imaging workshop intends to give students a theoretical and practical input on important considerations of live imaging using modern light microscopic technologies.

- Lecture 1: Live Imaging Considerations
- Lecture 2: Live Imaging Dyes and Fluorophores
hands-on planning of overnight and individual shorter time lapse experiments using widefield, spinning disc and confocal microscope setups

Assessment and permitted materials

Continuous Assessment/Oral exam

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students shall learn the theoretical background of imaging in a live regimen. This includes knowledge on instrumental and technological theory, combined with considerations on practical do's and don'ts. The latter shall finally be applied in practical hands-on-sessions using two different live microscopy setups.

Examination topics

a. Students will understand the theory behind basic and advanced light microscopy technologies
b. Students will get a deeper insight into the applicative potential of diverse light microscopy techniques for live imaging
c. Students will learn to transfer knowledge on microscopy hardware and fluorescent molecule selection into an experimental realization
d. Students will learn to critically review, troubleshoot and/or optimize live imaging experiments
e. Students will have to learn and work in cooperative teams
