> Dear colleagues,
>> On behalf of the scientific organisers Marcus Heisler (EMBL Heidelberg,
> Germany), Alexis Maizel (Center for Organismal Studies, University of
> Heidelberg, Germany) and Rüdiger Simon (Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf,
> Germany), we are pleased to inform you of the upcoming EMBO Practical Course
> in vivo Plant Imaging
> <http://www.embl.de/training/events/2015/PLA15-01/registration/index.html> ,
> to be held at EMBL Heidelberg from Monday 9 March to Sunday 15 March 2015.
> <http://www.embl.de/training/events/2015/PLA15-01/registration/index.html> is
> open and will be closed on Wednesday 10 December 2014.
>> This course will teach participants the practical aspects of live-imaging
> plant tissues. Plants are quite different to animals in many ways. For
> instance they typically develop much more slowly and cells do not migrate.
> Their overall morphologies are also very different and the presence of cell
> walls presents challenges optically. Over many years, certain laboratories
> have developed specialised imaging techniques optimised for plants. However
> despite these advances, the adoption of these techniques by the wider plant
> research community has been extremely limited. These specialised techniques
> will be taught to help promote their wider adoption. The course will cover the
> physical preparation of samples from different parts of the plant as well as
> time-lapse imaging strategies and image analysis approaches and uses.
>> The main practical themes will include:
>> - Confocal imaging of developing shoot meristems and leaves
> - Light-sheet imaging of roots
> - In vivo imaging of calcium and pH
> - Kinetic microscopy techniques, such as FRAP and FLIM-FRET.
>> Lectures on many other related topics such as image segmentation, modeling and
> Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) will also be presented.
>> We would be very grateful if you could help forwarding this announcement to
> your network. Thank you very much and if you have any questions please let me
>> Kind regards,
>> Diah Yulianti (Ms.)
