Optics for biological systems


Using a highly accessible style and format these lectures and labworks will provide an understanding of the underlying principles, benefits, and limitations of optical techniques currently used in biology.


Without relying on complex mathematics we are going to address basic concepts in imaging such as contrasting techniques, fluorescence and also explores advanced techniques such as quantitative fluorescence, three-dimensional imaging, nonlinear microscopy. Of course we'll also have to spend some time on multiple appendices on cell handling, labeling, and image manipulation.
