#30 Bayesian inference of chromatin structure from Hi-C data with Simeon Carstens

February 27, 2019

Hi-C is a sequencing-based assay that provides information about the 3-dimensional organization of the genome. In this episode Simeon Carstens explains how he applied the Inferential Structure Determination (ISD) framework to build a 3D model of chromatin and fit that model to Hi-C data using Hamiltonian Monte Carlo and Gibbs sampling.
