Image South-East Asian Course on F-techniques 2011

Aim and purpose

The course was intended for individuals wishing an in-depth introduction to the F-techniques and their application to the life sciences. Participants where normally graduate students or Post-docs who where using fluorescence microscopy in their research. Most participants had some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, other individuals, from totally different research areas and industry, got the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and benefited especially from the experimental section.

Course organisation

The course consisted of lectures and practical sessions.

The lectures on Monday and Tuesday (June 20/21) dealt with fluorescence, theory of F-techniques (FRET, FLIM, FCS and FRAP), FCS variants, instrumentation and data analysis. The lectures on Wednesday and Thursday (June 22/23) covered research applications of F-techniques in cell and developmental biology. On Friday (June 24) lectures focused on superresolution microscopy, PALM, STORM and PAINT.

Practical sessions (afternoons of June 21-24) covered steady-state and time-resolved experiments as well as data analysis on various instruments provided by market leading companies.

A poster session/welcome reception was held on the evening of the first day (Monday, June 20) to allow participants to meet instructors.

Practical sessions

The course schedule included 4 practical sessions of 120 minutes each. The sessions covered different experimental F-techniques on different instruments. Participants where divided into groups that rotated through the experimental stations.

Experimental techniques covered:

  • FCS, FCCS and FLCS
  • FLIM
  • FRAP, AP-FRET
  • FLIM-frequency domain
