用photoshop和ImageJ对Western Blot图片灰度分析

2015-07-30 浏览()

Comparing the intensity of bands on a Western blot can be done in a number of ways using software that is commonly found on lab computers or freely available for download. The following document outlines some of those methods.

For a long time, the de-facto standard for analysis in labs that didn't want to spring for multi-thousand $$ commercial densitometry software was Adobe Photoshop or one of the competing photo editing programs. All you really need in a program is a freehand selection tool and a way to measure the mean gray value inside the selection. We'll start with Adobe Photoshop as an example (you can find many references in the literature that include phrases such as "densitometry was carried out in Photoshop" in the methods section).

To start with, you'll need to scan in your xray film on a flat-bed scanner. This can be a cheap consumer unit, or a more expensive transparency scanner if you have access to such a beast. You can scan the film as a grayscale image, and set the resolution to a medium value (300-400dpi).

1. Open the scanned image in Photoshop.用photoshop和ImageJ对Western Blot图片灰度分析 - yjk6yjk - yjk6yjk的博客

2. Under Image>Mode, check the grayscale option if it's not already selected. We don't care about color information, only grayscale information, so we can discard the color information. 用photoshop和ImageJ对Western Blot图片灰度分析 - yjk6yjk - yjk6yjk的博客

3. Under Image>Adjustments, select Invert (or press Ctrl+I). Now the dark parts of the film are light, and the light parts are dark. This is useful later, as the high-expression bands, which are dark on the film, will have high numerical values when we measure them. When photo programs report darkness/lightness values, the dark points have values near zero, and the light points have values that max out at 255. 用photoshop和ImageJ对Western Blot图片灰度分析 - yjk6yjk - yjk6yjk的博客

Hadoop是一个由Apache基金会所开发的分布式系统基础架构。 用户可以在不了解分布式底层细节的情况下,开发分布式程序。充分利用集群的威力进行高速运算和存储。 Hadoop实现了一个分布式文件系统(Hadoop Distributed File System),简称HDFS。HDFS有高容错性的特点,并且设计用来部署在低廉的(low-cost)硬件上;而且它提供高吞吐量(high throughput)来访问应用程序的数据,适合那些有着超大数据集(large data set)的应用程序。HDFS放宽了(relax)POSIX的要求,可以以流的形式访问(streaming access)文件系统中的数据。 Hadoop的框架最核心的设计就是:HDFS和MapReduce。HDFS为海量的数据提供了存储,则MapReduce为海量的数据提供了计算。

PHP(外文名:PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor,中文名:“超文本预处理器”)是一种通用开源脚本语言。语法吸收了C语言、Java和Perl的特点,利于学习,使用广泛,主要适用于Web开发领域。PHP 独特的语法混合了C、Java、Perl以及PHP自创的语法。它可以比CGI或者Perl更快速地执行动态网页。用PHP做出的动态页面与其他的编程语言相比,PHP是将程序嵌入到HTML(标准通用标记语言下的一个应用)文档中去执行,执行效率比完全生成HTML标记的CGI要高许多;PHP还可以执行编译后代码,编译可以达到加密和优化代码运行,使代码运行更快。
