Data Acquisition and Processing in Biology and Medicine

Description

Data acquisition is the process of sampling signals that measures real world physical conditions and converts the resulting samples into digital numeric values that can be manipulated by computer. Data processing is, broadly, the collection and manipulation of data to produce meaningful information.

Conventionally, the data acquisition and processing are usual studied methods in engineering. There are also data that could be caught and manipulated from biological objects, either human or animal. However, the data in biology and medicine are not as direct and significant as physical signals. With the development of technology, the data could be cough by sensors form biological objects directly or indirectly. The data then could be processed to useful information. Computer tomography is the best example. The X-ray passes through human body and is detected by photoelectric senor; the computer reconstructs the axial images according to the data from sensor. This technology has a great benefit to human health. Therefore, through advancements in data acquisition and processing in biology and medicine, the human health could have a great advantage and improvement.

The main focus of this special issue is on the advancement of the data acquisition and processing techniques to facilitate the development in biology and medicine. The special issue becomes an international forum for researchers to explore and summarize the most recent progressing of the data acquisition and processing in biology and medicine.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Physiological data acquisition and processing
  • The development of biosensor
  • Image acquisition and processing in biology and medicine
  • Computer in biology and medicine, hardware setup, and software development
  • Database acquisition and analysis in biology and medicine
  • Computing algorithm and optimization in biology and medicine
