Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship Program

"Computational tools for biological imaging and spectroscopy"

About the Project

Project Time & Type:
Spring 2015 - DURI
Research area(s):
Software development, instrument interface, cellular imaging
Project Description:
This project will require the development of macros and or software to interface with an imaging system - hyperspectral imaging system developed in our lab for cellular imaging. The DURI intern will work very closely with the postdoctoral researcher on code/software development, hence will have clear instructions. The development will enable automated imaging and analysis (using macros developed by the postdoctoral researcher). The intern will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate a working software for live cell imaging. All biology and instrumentation will be handled by others in the team. We expect this to be a fulfilling experience because this will provide an opportunity for a real application and to garner skills in product development.
Expected Student Contributions:
Writing and testing code
