Abstract - This manuscript presents a lossless bitplane-based method for compression of microarray images based on expectation pixel values. The method compress each image on a bitplane basis, from the most to the least significant bitplanes, based on arithmetic coding driven by a 3D finite-context models and Expectation based Bitplane Coding (EBC). It produces an embedded bitstream that allows progressive decoding of the original image. The EBC is a technique where we can select future pixels to create the context template. EBC alone is not effective to compress microarray images, therefore, we decided to use an hybrid approach using EBC , intra-plane and inter-plane to create a more suitable context template. EBC is more efficient for compressing the least significant bitplanes where the expected values are close to the pixels true values. The results obtained with the proposed method are slightly better in some cases however, generally, they are very similar.
