Current estimation methods for band level resolutions of human chromosome images in cytogenetic laboratories are time consuming and required experienced specialists to manually perform. [] Key Method The intensity gradient profile and sign profile of chromosome images are utilized to count the number of bands. Then band level resolutions of chromosome images are classified into three categories: 400-, 500-, and 550-band levels by using k-nearest neighbor algorithm. The experimental results show the accuracy…

Computer-aided classification of human chromosomes: a review

Although completely error-free classification has not been, nor is ever likely to be, achieved, error rates have been reduced to levels that are acceptable for many routine purposes and the subject remains of interest to those involved in statistical classification.

It is shown that the differences can be considerable and that appropriate feature selection and classifier training substantially improve classification performance, and in particular a set of global shape features is introduced.
