Event description

Description

This short course, offered by the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center’s Integrated Microscopy Facility, provides a solid background on the use of light microscopy, especially confocal microscopy, as a tool to study cell and molecular biology. The course emphasizes imaging of plant tissues but its scope is not limited to this. The course consists of morning lectures that provide theoretical background in various aspects of light microscopy, and afternoon lab sessions that give the student hands-on experience in operating a confocal microscope, the Integrated Microscopy Facility’s Leica SP-8 confocal microscope. Students will not need to attend afternoons except for their scheduled hands-on training (two hour) session(s). Friday is solely for student training sessions. The course schedule is listed below. The course is designed for beginning and intermediate users of confocal microscopy, and for those wanting a refresher on confocal and light microscopy.
