Vorbesprechung am 2.3.2016, 11-12 Uhr im HS II; einwöchige Blocklehrveranstaltung


Aims, contents and method of the course

- basics of different light microscopical methods,

- fluorescence microscopy and modern laser scanning microscopy

- documentation on video and film,

(- computer enhanced video- and UV-microscopy)

Assessment and permitted materials

personal contributions during the course

analysis of an object in the light microscope with the different technique:discussion, which techniques are adequate and which are not (oral presentation)

written evaluation of study progress

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Light microscopical techniques are standards for biological questions; therefore, the knowledge of these methods is essential in biology. This course is dealing with the methods that are linked to the light microscope.

Examination topics

Light microsc.: bright field, dark field, phase- and interference contrast, polarization

Fluorescence micr.: conventioanal and confocal laser scanning microsc.

(Video- and UV microscopy)
