Image analysis is a key component in most areas of research in Life Sciences. This seminar will present an opportunity for cross‐fertilization of techniques. There will be presentations from image analysts working within Scottish pooling groups and those working in industry. This will be followed by a workshop or workshops to explore cross‐fertilization. There will be 10 minute presentations from individuals within Scottish academic pools outlining the problems that they are addressing, the image analysis techniques that they employ and the effectiveness/limitations of these techniques.
