This workshop focuses on the super-resolution technique of STochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM), particularly Direct STORM (dSTORM) and the analogous techniques of Ground State Depletion Imaging Microscopy (GSDIM) and Nikon STORM (N-STORM).
Monash Micro Imaging workshops emphasise hands-on learning and provide practical training. Lectures are designed to illustrate the practical aspects of techniques and everyone attending the practical sessions is expected to gain hands-on experience in preparing samples, operating microscopes and optimising imaging parameters to gain good data, and performing localisation analysis.
Concepts discussed in the Analysis lectures and practical sessions are applicable to other single molecule localisation techniques, such as PALM.
Date: 17-19 August 2015
Target audience: research staff and students working with Super Resolution by Single Molecule Localisation, specifically STORM and STORM variants.
Instrumentation and Analysis: 9hrs
