NorMIC workshop - Microscopy Image Processing

The NorMIC series of workshops aims to teach biological researchers (PhD students, engineers, postdocs and young PIs) the principles of biological microscopes and image processing.

Registration is closed (confirmation of participation will be sent out on 7th Nov).


The theory part of this course will cover image formation, processing workflow, segmentation, filters, de-convolution, rendering and visualization, classification, and AI-based processing.

Based on the feedback from the previous workshops, we will reduce the number of software we teach. This is to ensure that participants can have a more in-depth knowledge of each software and will be able to perform relatively high-end image processing tasks after they complete this course.

We will use the following software: Image J, Imaris, Nikon NIS, Deconvolution (Heintzmann Lab)

Image J and Deconvolution are freeware and Nikon NIS and Imaris are commercial software but available at the NorMIC imaging platform.
