Nonlinear preprocessing method for detecting peaks from gas chromatograms

Byonghyo Shim, Hyeyoung Min, Sungroh Yoon
2009 BMC Bioinformatics  
The key feature of our new algorithm is the successive use of peak enhancement algorithms that are deliberately designed for a gradual improvement of peak detection quality.  ...  Given the fact that biological signals appear in the form of peaks in various experimental data and that the propose method can easily be extended to such data, our approach will be a useful and robust  ...  In order to design a systematic peak detection method, we should rely upon minimum guidelines on the characteristics of peak signal to detect.  ...

Removing ECG contamination from EMG recordings: A comparison of ICA-based and other filtering procedures

Nienke W. Willigenburg, Andreas Daffertshofer, Idsart Kingma, Jaap H. van Dieën
2012 Journal of Electromyography & Kinesiology  
We propose the use of independent component analysis (ICA) for removing ECG contamination and compared it with other procedures previously developed to decontaminate EMG.  ...  ICA decomposition was performed with and without a separately collected ECG signal as part of the data set and contaminated ICA modes representing ECG were identified automatically.  ...  Superposition was implemented by adding channels 2-16 of the ECG to channels 2-16 of the uncontaminated limb EMG recordings (EMG uncon ), resulting in 15 contaminated EMG signals (EMG con ).  ...
