We often hear retraction of papers with fake image data like gel images with hand-drawn bands and cleanups, but in addition to such elementary-level mistakes, there are image analyses used in papers that are scientifically questionable. With Simon, we tried to shed light on this overlooked problem and propose a solution.
Details of motivations, the design, and paedagogic concepts of NEUBIAS Bioimage Analysis schools, started in 2017, are now in a manuscript. I wrote the “Bioimage Analyst School” part, and am quite satisfied to have the written record of our struggle and achievements, that I did together with the bioimage analysis genius Jean-Yves Tinevez (The Pasteur Institute, Paris).

As of May 3rd 2016, supported by COST grant, NeuBIAS officially launched for creating a stronger and broader network among bioimage analysts: read "EuBIAS Manifesto (2013, DOI:10.5281/zenodo.18047)" for more details about our initial motivation. The official document stating our activities is here (PDF)
BIAS has been a small group, and EuBIAS has been a bit larger but now with NeuBIAS, it's big!
A new book is now online: “Bioimage Data Analysis”. The instructors of EMBL Bioimage Data Analysis coauthored 10 chapters on practical techniques for analyzing image data in biology. E-books are downloadable free of charge from the following link.
For sample image data and codes, please download from the following link:
The CMCI seminar has been either spontaneous or took a form of mini-symposium, but now in a new format.
Every three weeks, seminar member gathers and two of them present image analysis problems / solutions or reads a paper. For more details and the schedule, see this page.
The 2nd “EMBL Master course on BioImage Data Analysis” will be in May. I , Sebastien Tosi (Barcelona) and Perrine Paul-Gilloteaux will be organizing the course. Here is the wiki page for this year.
I added biography of invited speakers, so please check if you are interested! By the way, we abbreviate the course title as “BIAS2014”.
The European Bioimage Analsis Symposium (EuBIAS) 2013 ended successfully! The meeting was with many active discussions, the course impressed students, the taggathon (we invented this event) generated a new type of bioimage analysis tool aggregator Biii.info. Great developers, great analysts, great users! Community, community, community!
