COBA-CellProfiler office hours and tutorials

Hi all,

Given the success of previous office hour events, our team is going to continue offering these at regular intervals (currently planned for every 2 weeks), sponsored by COBA, the Center for Open Bioimage analysis. We’ll announce for each session when registrations are open at - signups for this Friday 4/27 are live now!

Due to the high demand, we are implementing a one signup per year policy- we wish we had capacity to help everyone as often as needed, but there are thousands of users and only a handful of us. We definitely therefore advise you to already have a specific question in mind before you sign up, to make sure to make best use of the time you have!

We will also continue tutorials, which will now be collected at - you can check out the previous video intros to CellProfiler and CellProfiler-Analyst there now! For now, we plan to do most of these still as live to allow possibility for questions during the stream, but this week’s video introduction to Distributed-CellProfiler will be pre-taped and uploaded this Friday.

Please feel free to also use this thread to suggest topics for future workshops and tutorials!


if you were to run a tutorial on CellProfiler headless and scripting for batch headless on a server… i’d be interrested :slight_smile: (as I am in the other tutorials as well)
