IMPRS-LS Workshop

 
Date: Wednesday 20th November 2019

Location: Large Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Andreas Kist

Description: Programming is a highly desirable and applicable skill in science. With the open source and universal programming language Python, you can acquire, analyze, and present your data easily without leaving one programming environment.

A lot of daily tasks are easy to reasonable difficult to automate or simplify. In this one-day workshop, students will learn how to batch process files, interact with CSV and Excel files easily and create paper quality plots with ease. Further, part of the course is dedicated to the needs of the students and we will work us through some issues course participants are faced with.

Course aim:
Learn to rename, read and process files dynamically, use the pandas and seaborn package for data mining, statistics and plotting.


 

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Thursday 21th - Friday 22th November 2019

Location: Large Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Andreas Kist

Description: Programming is a highly desirable and applicable skill in science. With the open source and universal programming language Python, you can acquire, analyze, and present your data easily without leaving one programming environment.

This workshop focuses on scientific image processing using Python. We discuss different file formats and origins, how to open different file formats and deal with metadata. We cover basic image processing principles such as histogram equalization, (local) thresholding, alignment and segmentation. For each topic, we will use real data to showcase the applicability of the learned functions. On the second day, we will further emphasize functions that fit the students’ needs and invite one to two speakers that show briefly where they use Python in image processing. The course also highlights strategies how to tackle an image processing pipeline.

This course will be adjusted according to the participants’ background.

Course aim:
Use the skimage and OpenCV package to process imaging data.

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Thursday 28th - Friday 29th November 2019

Location: Large Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Verena Resch

Description: This workshop teaches basics in graphic design, thus giving you the tools to create your own visual identity as a scientist and communicate your results. First module focuses on the basics of graphic design. These include colour theory and colour systems, image formats (e.g., vector and pixel format) and typography. Furthermore, we will get to the bottom of modern graphic design and break it down to the basic concepts. The goal is to learn how to apply these concepts to your daily life as a scientist.

Second module will cover basisc of 3D-rendering. Most of you taped into this topic when using, for example, Pymol or Chem3D for rendering. These programs are perfect when you only want to create one single 3D molecule or protein. However, if you want to spoil your molecule or protein with a complete “photo shoot” including perfect lighting and a suiting surrounding, we need some advanced rendering technique.

IMPRS-LS Seminar

 

Date: Thursday 5th December 2019

Location: Small lecture hall, T-building, 1st floor, MPIB   |  closed event, open only for IMPRS-LS students

The IMPRS-LS Seminar is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their innovative research to their peers in a friendly environment. IMPRS-LS students will have the chance to present their projects in either talk or poster format.

Our poster sessions provide the perfect opportunity for IMPRS-LS students to network with colleagues and discuss their most recent findings. Students additionally have the chance to vote for their favorite talk and poster, with the winners from each category being announced at the end of the seminar.

The IMPRS-LS seminar will conclude with our annual "IMPRS-LS X-mas party", refreshments will be provided. We look forwards to welcoming all IMPRS-LS students!

IMPRS-LS Workshop

 
Date: Wednesday 11th - Friday 13th December 2019

Location: Large Conference Room, 1st floor, T-building, MPI of Biochemistry

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: Do you have data to publish, but keep putting off writing that paper because you don’t know where to begin? 

How to get started and keep going as well as what goes where and in which tense will be the starting point of this workshop. We will also review key scientific sentence structures as well as strategies to keep your text concise and precise. Issues such as how to create flow and generate the correct level of emphasis will also be discussed. Together we will explore how to make scientific writing understandable and readable and begin the process of integrating these factors into your own scientific writing style. Finally, we will formulate a plan on how you can improve your scientific vocabulary and writing style for future writing tasks. The Scientific Writing Workshop is ideal for non-native English-speaking early-stage research scientists
