In this paper, we propose a new nonlinear matching measure for automatic analysis of the on-off type DNA microarray images in which the hybridized spots are detected by the template matching method. The proposed measure is obtained by binary-thresholding over the whole template region and taking the number of white pixels inside the spotted area. This measure is compared with the normalized covariance in terms of the classification ability of the successfulness of the locating markers. The proposed measure is evaluated for the scanned images of HPV DNA microarrays where the marker locating is a critical issue because of the small number of spots. The targeting spots of HPV DNA chips are designed for genotyping 22 types of the human papilloma virus(HPV). The proposed measure is proven to give more discriminative response reducing the miss cases of the successful marker locating.

본 논문에서는 교잡반응된 스팟을 템플릿 정합법으로 감지하는 온-오프 형태의 DNA 마이크로어레이 영상의 자동분석을 위한 새로운 비선형 정합도를 제안한다. HPV DNA 칩의 목표 스팟은 인유두종 바이러스(HPV)의 종을 알아내기 위해서 설계된다. 제안하는 척도는 전체 템플릿 영역을 이진 문턱값으로 양극화하여 스팟 영역 내의 밝은 화소의 개수를 취해서 얻는다. 이 척도를 추정된 마커 위치의 정확도 관점에서 평가하여 정규화된 상관도보다 우수함을 보인다.
