Event Details & Abstract: 

This hands-on workshop will give students a taste of modern scientific computing in python using the Jupyter
Notebook environment. Jupyter notebooks are executable documents that interleave narrative (rich text,
math equations, figures, links) with code. The notebook workflow ties together high-level descriptions
of the analysis, code and results in a single document that is easy to share or re-run. Even beginners
can read and re-run analyses modifying parameters and exploring the effect on the results, either
on the cloud or on personal computers. In this workshop we will interactively explore a
single-molecule fluorescence microscopy video, performing tasks such as background
subtraction, denoising, region of interest extraction, segmentation and analysis of blinking
time-trajectories (on-off trajectories) of individual emitters. We will use numpy, scipy,
matplotlib, pandas and more. Some basic experience with python is preferred.
The analysis will be performed on a cloud service accessed with own laptop
(browser-only, no installation required).
All participants are welcome—please register and test the login before workshop.
Users without a working log-in will not be able to participate.
