In this article, we present an investigation of an approach to extract discriminating features from differential mobility spectrometer (DMS) signals generated from two sets of in vitro samples of headspace that contain volatile organic compounds. The two classes of signals we analyze are a strain of tuberculosis grown in media and the media alone. Our approach first preprocesses the DMS signals to recover a baselined signal and then applies a wavelet transform to obtain localized measures of… CONTINUE READING
