Tissue-clearing, light-sheet microscopy, and deconvolution and image analysis workshop

Tissue-Clearing, Lightsheet Microscopy, and Deconvolution and Image Analysis Workshop

The QBI Microscopy and Histology Facilities invite you to join us for a day of presentations and hands-on sessions on Friday, September 17, 2021, where participants will learn about tissue-clearing techniques, custom-built scanned light-sheet fluorescence microscopy, and 3D deconvolution and image processing and analysis pipelines.

Workshop schedule:
