Graphical modelling in epidemiology

Overview

Bayesian graphical modelling is a methodology for analyzing and exploring complex multi-dimensional data. A commonly used type of Bayesian graphical model is a Bayesian Network. Bayesian networks are a type of machine learning tool commonly used for data mining and are finding increasing application in computational biology. Such multidimensional approaches are also ideally suited for analyses of complex epidemiological data, such as risk factor analyses.
