Bayesian inference in multipoint gene mapping

Ann Hum Genet. 1993 Jan;57(1):65-82. doi: 10.1111/j.1469-1809.1993.tb00887.x.


The problem of ordering and mapping genes on the basis of recombinant data and radiation hybrid data is formulated as a problem of Bayesian inference for an unknown permutation. The challenging computational problems posed by this approach are shown to be resolvable using Markov chain Monte Carlo methods.
