Probabilistic Graphical Models for Genetics, Genomics, and Postgenomics

Prognosis is an essential tool in medicine for estimating the likely outcomes of a disease and for preventing it. The traditional approach relies on measuring physiological and environmental parameters. With the recent availability of genome-wide data, it is now possible to incorporate the genetic information for predicting complex diseases. Probabilistic graphical models are well-known for their efficiency in predictive issue and thus represent good candidate models in this context. The probabilistic graphical model framework provides many assets: data uncertainty modeling, fast probabilistic inference algorithms, easy incorporation of expert knowledge and good predictive performance.

Keywords:   clinical outcomes, genome-wide data, naive Bayes model, Bayesian model averaging, ROC curve
