Flow cytometry is an essential and versatile analytical tool with countless applications in basic research and clinical medicine. Learn basic principles on how the technology works, how it came to be, and how it can be used to benefit your research.

ImageJ is a very popular and powerful software for image visualization, processing, and analysis. It is free, open-source, runs on all major desktop operating systems, and can open most images including proprietary formats. ImageJ boasts a large and vibrant community of scientists, image analysis experts, and software developers who are continually creating and sharing new plugins and analysis/processing protocols.

This webinar, presented by Kristopher Kubow of James Madison University, begins with where to find and download ImageJ, a description of the different versions that are available, and how to enhance ImageJ’s capabilities with plugins. The presentation is followed by an orientation to ImageJ that includes how to perform common simple visualization and processing tasks. Finally, Kubow demonstrates some of the more advanced capabilities of the program and share some of the extensive resources that are available to help learn more.

Presented by Kiri DeBose, Associate Director of Health Sciences Libraries and Liaison to Animal Science, Virginia Tech.

While you may associate the library with just being the place to go to for books and articles, did you know you can also check out high resolution digital cameras, audio recorders, a digital piano, and even an embroidery machine? Or that the libraries can help you write a Data Management Plan (DMP) for your grant, provide a repository for your scholarly outputs, or help you take an idea all the way through to the prototype phase? Or that the library also provides publishing services, assistance with citation managers, an Open Access Subvention Fund, and host a wide variety of workshops and events that go well beyond searching for information?

This presentation includes a discussion of these and other services so you can learn how the University Libraries are more than just a place to access and use books and articles, but also a place to collaborate, innovate, create, and share.
