The role of bioimaging in the life sciences has contributed to major discoveries and applications, which is reflected by the resolution-revolution and the receipt of two Nobel prizes for biological imaging techniques in the last decade. At the same time, the integration of computational power in contributing to image generation, precision localization of signal as well as deep learning approaches to recognize biological structures of interest has received major global attention. The 4th industrial revolution is becoming increasingly tangible in research conduct and approaches in biology, allowing to address new questions with novel approaches. In this workshop, we introduce the role of artificial intelligence and machine learning in biology. In particular, we focus on the context of cell death control, due to the wide clinical relevance in governing cellular fate, such as in degenerative diseases or cancer. We discuss the role of precision autophagy control, as a critical pathway in cell death decision-making, and highlight tools that allow the control of cellular shape, i.e. micropatterning. Moreover, we showcase how the 3-dimensional space of a cell or tissue can be most precisely assessed by virtual reality (VR)-guided sample navigation. When linked to machine-learning, highly precise molecular events, such as mitochondrial dynamics can be uniquely captured and quantitatively assessed. Hands-on exposure to VR, coding and 3-D image animations will facilitate this process. Finally, we introduce concepts of CLARITY for brain tissue clearing and 3-dimensional image acquisition tools required to allow analysis and visualization in the multi-dimensional space.

Outcomes of the workshop

During this 3 day workshop, the students will be exposed to the current understanding of cell death modalities and the use in imaging techniques to precision-control cellular fate. In this context, students will learn about the role of computational biology and machine learning, the role of miro-patterning in controlling cellular shape as well as the most recent applications of virtual reality (VR) – guided sample navigation and precision analysis. In this context, the student will receive hands on experience in sample navigation using VR, selecting regions of interest, and performing analysis based on 3D guided selectivity. The student will learn the impact of precision gained when comparing 3D versus 2D cell or tissue analyses. Moreover, the student will be exposed to applications of machine learning in the context of mitochondrial dynamics, such as fission, fusion and depolarization, and will receive hand-on exposure to the basics of machine learning for biological analysis, the use of coding in writing of macros associated with image data as well as thresholding modalities and their impact on object recognition. Finally, the workshop will expose the student to techniques associated with brain tissue clearing and multidimensional as well as correlative imaging approaches. Here, hands on experience in creating image animations as well as the establishing of files suitable for 3D printing will be provided. Taken together, this combination of theory and hands-on exposure will provide unique insights into the relevance of interdisciplinary work, including electrical and electronic engineering, computational sciences and the life sciences.

Department of Biotechnology, JSS Science and Technology University in association with Departments of Information Science and Computer Science Engineering had organised an International workshop on bio imaging trends and applications in life sciences on Oct 23, 24 and 25, as an initiative of TEQIP III.

Several academicians, industrialists, undergraduate and postgraduate research scholars and students from around Karnataka have registered to participate.

This international workshop will provide an opportunity for all the participants to have an experience on current understanding of cell death modalities and the use of Bio-imaging techniques to precision control cellular fate. The rightful blend of theory and hands on exposure of the three day journey starting from today will provide the participants unique insights into relevance of interdisciplinary work including Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computational Sciences and Life Sciences.

The inauguration ceremony held this morning was graced by Dr B Suresh, Pro Chancellor, JSS Academy of Higher Education & Research, who was the Chief Guest for the occasion and presided by Prof T N Nagabhushan, Principal, SJCE.  Prof Suresh spoke about the human’s evolution of interests in aesthetics, prosthetics, bionics and robotics. He further added that the doors of JSS Academy of Higher Education & Research is wide open for scientific collaborations and exchange of ideas, which would benefit students and society, at large. This was further emphasised by the guest speaker, Dr Ben Loos, Professor, Department of Physiological Sciences, Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Dr Ben said, the workshop is a unique cocktail of molecular imaging, super resolution imaging, machine learning, bio modelling and computational biology which makes it one of its kinds. Further, Prof T N Nagabhushan explained the essence of industrial revolution 4.0 to the students.  The program was graced with many other dignitaries of various academic interests. Dr MN Nagandra Prasad, Head, Dept of Biotechnology rendered the welcome note. Dr S Nanjunda Swamy briefed about the workshop to the participants and Prof M S Maheshan presented Vote of Thanks.

All in all, the students and the delegates seemed extremely excited to learn, explore and understand this budding field of Bio-imaging.
