As was the case for BIAT 2011, this second edition aims at teaching the participants to master different technologies and image analyses. They will also be trained practically in a coherent and complementary way during the 4 ½ days transverse practical courses. This course will give access to tools and methods taking advantage of the complementary relationship between bio-photonic technologies and their associated analytical methodologies, which are required to understand the multi-scale organization of complexity at the cellular or the embryonic levels.

The skills the attendees are expected to develop are:

  • Multimodal experimental strategies
  • Image acquisition strategies & analysis together with data processing
  • Data reading and modeling
  • Development of measurement techniques for intracellular dynamics and molecular interactions (FRAP, FRET, TIRF, FLIM/FCS, FCCS, TPE, SPIM/DSLM…)
  • To correlate different types of imaging (photonic microscopy, electron microscopy, cytometry)
  • To develop super-resolution techniques (PALM, STORM, STED…)
  • To use biosensors for functional studies of the cell
  • To understand the specific requirements for use of a defined model organism (zebrafish, plants, ascidians, etc)
