Gridding is the first, essential stage of processing cDNA microarray images. The existing tools for allocating the grid structure in a microarray image often require human intervention which causes variations to the gene expression results. In this paper, an original and fully-automatic approach to gridding microarray images is presented. The proposed approach is based on a genetic algorithm which determines parallel and equidistant line-segments constituting the grid structure. Thereafter, a… CONTINUE READING
