Lead instructor: Valentina Lodde
Data collection and analysis in scientific research often requires use of digital imaging. Moreover, scientists communicate their work to their peers and to non-scientist by means of images. Therefore, every researcher must know all the necessary tools to properly acquire and process their images, as well as to build figures that effectively illustrate their scientific work. During this course the students will learn all the steps that lead to the creation of a figure to be published in a scientific journal, conforming them to publisher's requirements while ensuring image integrity
