We will be hosting a hands-on workshop on Arivis 4D software in the BPHO core on September 21st, from 1-4PM. If you would like to participate, please be sure to sign up and note that there are only six 30 minute spots available. If you do sign up, please make sure to have the dataset you want to work on copied to the D drive of the BPHO-4 workstation before the workshop begins, so that we don’t have to wait on files being copied.
Inspired by Kurt Thorn, who no longer maintains his incredibly useful microscopy blog, I have longed for a forum to share exciting news about microscopy happening either here at Salk or anywhere else in the world. I will also use this space to make announcements on developments in the WABC, and will every now and then post sample data/images, advice specific to our instruments, or anything else that strikes my fancy. I will also occasionally allow for guest posts, when appropriate.
