Workshop on Bioimage Processing with Python

From July 11 to 15, 2022, the 1st MIC Workshop on Bioimage Processing with Python, led by MIC team member Dr. Guillaume Witz, took place in the Bernese Oberland. A mix of eight participants from the University of Bern, three from European universities and one from a private company learned how to develop Python-based bioimage processing workflows using cutting edge tools like cellpose, napari etc. Participants also had the opportunity to work on their own projects and to discuss them with Guillaume Witz and with each other. It was a great experience to see how concepts and tools just taught were applied live to those projects, and how participants made massive progress in such a short time! During breaks and evening time the beautiful park of Sherlock Holme's favourite hotel in Meiringen was a wonderful stage for many more informal discussions on science, microscopy, biology etc. made especially interesting by the participants' diverse backgrounds. Finally, participants also enjoyed the many hiking and excursion possibilities available in Meiringen to recover from an intensive learning program. Inspired by this success, MIC will organize the 2ndMIC Workshop on Bioimage Processing in 2023.
