Protocol published

Dr Chentao Wen published a protocol in Methods in Molecular Biology. He details the challenges of cell tracking within deforming organs and moving animals and explains how to use the latest version of 3DeeCellTracker to accurately track cells, thereby enhancing our understanding of various organ dynamics and biological processes.

[For Students] BDR Summer School

BDR are holding a summer school for students.

This is an excellent opportunity for students who are interested in life science research and want to become researchers in the future, interested in entering the RIKEN Collaborative Graduate School to join cutting-edge research laboratories. In the Onami lab, students will work on the mathematical and computational science of genomic 3D structural data.

For more information, please visit the BDR Summer School 2024 website.

GBI_EoE 2024

Global BioImaging Exchange of Experience (EoE) workshops are a unique open forum for discussion and generation of new ideas, where imaging facility managers and technical staff, scientists, science policy officers and funders from around the globe, come together to build the interpersonal relations necessary for the success of the Global BioImaging network.

This year, EoE is coming to Okazaki, Japan. We are co-organizing #GBI_EoE2024 with ABiS and Global BioImaging. Save the data and see you in Okazaki.

Global BioImaging Exchange of Experience IX

  • DATES: 29th to 31st of October of 2024
  • LOCATION: Okazaki Conference Centre, Okazaki – Japan
  • TOPIC: Image Data Horizons – Global Strategies for Accessible Knowle

Travel Grant for Exchange of Experience IX

foundingGIDE – Laying the foundations of a Global Image Data Ecosystem

We are very excited to announce the launch of foundingGIDE project funded by Horizon Europe.

Led by Euro-BioImaging, the foundingGIDE project is a global consortium with 7 partners including our SSBD that aim to found of a Global Image Data Ecosystem (GIDE).

To find more about the foundingGIDE project, read “foundingGIDE – Laying the foundations of a Global Image Data Ecosystem“, published by Euro-BioImaging.
