Paper Abstract

In order to extract the protein spots in a gel image from the uneven background which has sharp edges, e.g., lines and streaks in some areas, the authors have developed a detection algorithm where the median, FMH or morphological filter is taken as the smoother to estimate the varying background. The performance comparison shows that FMH detectors provide a simple implementation as well as a good compromise between streak removing and spot distortion.
