Fast blind (forgery) inspection for western blot and PCR images.
Updated 8 Dec 2021


This is a fast-blind-inquiry (FBI) method for post-processing modifications on gel electrophoresis images, including western blot and PCR images.

This is an encrypted MATLAB file, and this program can be called simply by entering "noise_pattern_DFTpsbk('inputfilename.bmp')" in MATLAB command line.

As for the way to interprete our inquiry result, please refer to my IEEE GlobalSIP 2018 paper or refer to my arXiv manuscript. This project was supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan (MOST 107-2320-B-030-012-MY3).
