Bitplane, the world’s leading interactive 3D and 4D image visualization and analysis software company, will be supporting the Embryology: Concepts & Techniques in Modern Developmental Biology course from Saturday June 2 to Sunday July 15, 2012
An intensive six-week laboratory and lecture course for advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and more senior researchers who seek a broad and balanced view of the modern issues of developmental biology.
The integrated lectures and laboratories provide a comprehensive coverage of the paradigms, problems, and technologies of modern developmental biology, cast within a framework of metazoan evolution. This broad coverage of metazoan phylogeny allows for the analyses of the developmental strategies that drive evolutionary change. Analytical and experimental techniques used to explore invertebrate and vertebrate development include embryological manipulation (e.g. cell ablation, tissue grafting), molecular genetic ( e.g. RNAi, electroporation) and cell biology approaches ( e.g. analysis of cell lineage and migratory behaviour), and microscopic and imaging technologies (e.g. confocal and 3-D time lapse), using state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodology.
At this course Bitplane will provide a number of licenses which attendees can use to demo the latest version of Imaris. Imaris is Bitplane’s core software that delivers all the necessary functionality for data visualization, analysis, segmentation and interpretation of 3D and 4D microscopy datasets. Combining speed, precision and ease of use Imaris provides a complete set of features for working with three and four-dimensional multi-channel images of any size.
