300416 PP 3-D Imaging and Modeling Using MicroCT (2016S)

10.00 ECTS (6.00 SWS), SPL 30 - Biologie
Continuous assessment of course work

Students must also register for and attend UE 300530 "Imaging and visualization in developmental biology - Principles and applications, including 3 D Methods."



max. 8 participants
Language: English



Class will meet weekly on Wednesdays 10:15 in the Theoretical Biology Imaging Lab (UZA I, Ebene 2, Spange 3). First class meeting is Wed. 2 March.


Aims, contents and method of the course

Students will design and carry out projects using x-ray microtomographic (microCT) or other 3D images of small biological samples and write a research report in the format of a scientific paper. Techniques will include applications of image processing and analysis software to 2- and 3D images, 3D image reconstruction and visualisation, and 3D modeling.
This course is not blocked, so the project work can be carried out according each student's own schedule.
