Title: Image analysis system and method of biochip

Abstract: Disclosed is a biochip image analysis system which comprises an image storage unit for storing images including an original image of a biochip comprising a set of specific genes expressed in different environments by fluorescent bases of different colors; an image converter for converting the original image into a test image, forming an overlapped image and a color image, and storing the images in the image storage unit; an edge detector for separating the spot-formed genes from the test image, generating spot and background templates, and detecting an edge to measure expression degrees of the genes; a data processor for generating statistical data using the spot and background templates, and performing luminance correction; and a data storage unit for storing the statistical data.
