Didactic Overview. Open to all ASCB attendees.

Hands-on workshop. Limited to 40 participants who must pre-register. This workshop is sold out.Please arrive at room 31B at the San Diego Convetion Center on Tuesday prior to the overview (before 3pm) to add your name to a waiting list. The list is first-come, first-served. 

Image-based experiments in cultured cells are powerful, generating information-rich, high-content data for diverse biological applications.

The didactic overview will introduce biologists to the sorts of phenotypes that can be quantified in images and basic concepts of image analysis.

The hands-on workshop will instruct biologists in the use of CellProfiler, an open-source, freely downloadable software package designed for automated phenotypic image analysis, at both large- and small-scale. We will also demonstrate CellProfiler Analyst, which uses machine learning to score phenotypes where phenotypic differences between samples are subtle or even invisible by eye.

Pre-registered participants are encouraged to submit sample images from their assays as part of the demonstration (contact mbray@broadinstitute.org for details).

If you are registered for the hands-on workshop, be sure to remember to bring your laptop with the following software downloaded prior to the session:

This session is full, we will start at waiting list at 2:40 pm outside of the session, Room 31B, for those who still wish to attend the hands-on portion of the workshop in case registered attendees do not show up. The overview is still open to all attendees and not just those pre-registered so you are welcome to attend that portion.
