Hybrid Spot Segmentation in Four-Channel Microarray Genotyping Image Data

Abstract

In this paper we present a novel hybrid algorithm for spot segmentation in four-channel genotyping microarray images. A new four-dimensional clustering approach for fully-automated spot segmentation is proposed, along with a new iterative method to automatically identify the number of clusters in a single-spot area. A spatial shape detection step is… (More)
