Abstract

This work introduces our method for automatic classification of crystallization trial images according to the types of protein crystals present in the images. The images are classified into four categories: needles, small crystals, large crystals, and other crystals. Because protein crystals are characterized by some geometric shapes, we focus on extracting geometric features from the images. Our image feature extraction includes ...
