Processing microscopy images is important to quantify data in both biophysics and soft matter. This course provides an introduction to image processing starting with how to obtain a digital image and how to apply simple filters. You will also get a chance to visit the electron microscopy and analytics facility at caesar. Follow-up lectures will then introduce you to optical flow/feature detection, machine learning, classification of images, and scientific visualisation. Using Python, ilastik, and ImageJ/Fiji, you will be able to get first hands-on experience on image processing.
