PMOD Application Course

Monday-Wednesday, March 27-29, 2023


The aim of PMOD’s Application Course is to familiarize participants with the major PMOD tools and functionalities, provide hands-on experience by making use of case-studies and real-life example data sets, and to relate popular workflows for classical and some exotic image analysis tasks. Short presentations by PMOD’s Application Scientists will outline the working principles of PMOD. The core of the course will be a series of guided exercises on the computer, using a case-study approach where possible. The exercises will cover both human and preclinical data. Invited speakers will present parts of their work, the challenges they faced regarding image processing and how PMOD can help in such cases. The participants are required to bring their own laptops. Each participant will get access to the latest PMOD version as well as training data sets to be used during the course.

Further Training Options

PMOD is a software which can be applied for basic as well as complex data analysis tasks. We have developed video-based training material which allows users to get familiar with the main features of PMOD. Material illustrating more complex workflows is in the works. However, experience shows that it is difficult to cover all the potential situations that users encounter when analyzing their real-life data. Therefore we believe that our custom PMOD Training & Support Packages are the best solution to advanced training.

To get familiar with PMOD we recommend you to start with the Tutorial Videos. They demonstrate typical uses of the main functionality in short sequences with human and rodent data. As the data for reproducing the workflows is included in the PMOD Demo database, users can practice the basic skills in a 1:1 fashion.

The PMOD web-based training sessions have been extremely useful and valuable to myself and other research members at Stanford. The sessions are customized to suit your needs and are interactive. The staff will walk you through each step of the process and ensure that you understand the task at hand. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about the functions of PMOD.
