Large numbers of previous work regarding the study of lane detection in DNA gel image have been proposed and performed on good quality images. Current lane detection methods that are available do not accommodate techniques that can be performed automatically on poor DNA gel image. Lane detection is the first step in any gel image analysis techniques which involved tedious and time-consuming tasks. The accuracy of this step is often compromised by technical variation inherent to DNA gel image. For that reason, the aim of this thesis is to identify and propose a method that is effective in detecting the lane in poor DNA gel image of plants. The imperfection of DNA gel image caused by the electrophoresis or during the acquisition of the gel image causes many types of noises, which contaminate the resulting image. These errors and noises significantly affect the processing and analysis of the DNA gel image. The conducted experiment examines 184 poor DNA gel images collected from Agrobiodiversity and Environment Research Centre, Institut Penyelidikan dan Kemajuan Pertanian Malaysia (MARDI), Malaysia. The DNA gel images were produced by electrophoresis-based method using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based marker system. There are two highlighted aspects performed to achieve the objective of this thesis that are image enhancement and lane detection. The image enhancement of the poor DNA gel image is performed using two different approaches that are spatial and frequency filtering. The two approaches are compared and the quality of the enhanced images was accessed and evaluated using objective image quality metric that is peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR). For lane detection, we describe the convention of threshold value in the analysis of poor DNA gel image to eliminate false peak contained in the intensity profile obtained from the enhanced image data projection…
