This course is addressed to life sciences researchers and technicians who routinely work with complex biological structures (specimens) and need to digitise their samples for different reasons, such as digital preservation, quantitative or biomechanics analyses, etc.
The goal of this course is to explain how you can work with a range of technologies with the aim of obtaining a 3D virtual models from different sources, such as laser imaging, photogrammetry and (micro) computed tomography (CT). By the end of the course participants should be able to obtain high quality digitalizations of samples with the most commonly used techniques and also be able to edit and manipulate the digital models that are produced.
Attendees will also learn to stain with Lugol’s iodine, a specific technique for specimen preparation for micro CT scanning which maximizes soft-tissue differentiation in CT imaging datasets. DiceCT Online.
Former participants will have a 5 % discount on the Course Fee.
Unfortunately there are no scholarships available for this course. However a 20 % discount on the Course Fee is offered for members of some organizations (Organizations with discount). If you want to apply to this discount please indicate it in the Registration form (proof will be asked later).
Spanish unemployed scientists, as well as Spanish PhD students without any grant or scholarship to develop their PhD, could benefit from a 40 % discount on the Course Fee. If you want to ask for this discount, please contact the course coordinators. That would apply for a maximum of 2 places and they will be covered by strict inscription order.
