We present an algorithm for registering, segmenting and quantifying multiple scanned electrophoresis images. (2D gel) Electrophoresis is a technique for separating proteins or other macromolecules in organic material according to net charge and molecular mass and results in scanned grayscale images with dark spots against a light background marking the presence of such macromolecules. The algorithm begins by registering each of the images using a non-rigid registration algorithm. The registered images are then jointly segmented using a Markov random field approach to obtain a single segmentation. By using multiple images, the effect of noise is greatly reduced. We demonstrate the algorithm on several sets of real data.
