This paper introduces an automated image processing procedure capable of processing complementary deoxyribonucleic acid (cDNA) microarray images. Microarray data is contaminated by noise and suffers from broken edges and visual artifacts. Without the utilization of a filter, subsequent tasks such as spot identification and gene expression determination(More)
This paper presents a new cost-effective, adaptive multichannel filter taking advantage of switching schemes, robust order-statistic theory and approximation of the multivariate dispersion. Introducing the statistical control of the switching between the vector median and the identity operation , the developed filter enhances the detail-preserving(More)
The rapid growth of image archives increases the need for efficient and fast tools that can retrieve and search through large amount of visual data. In this paper we propose an efficient method of extracting the image color content, which serves as an image digital signature, allowing to efficiently index and retrieve the content of large, heterogeneous(More)
This paper presents a novel filtering framework capable of processing cDNA microarray images. The proposed two-component adaptive vector filters integrate well-known concepts from the areas of fuzzy set theory, nonlinear filtering, multidimensional scaling and robust order-statistics. By appropriately setting the weighting coefficients in a generalized(More)
