Gibbs sampling is one of the best-known Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. Its first and most popular application to bioinformatics is the sequence motif finding problem. Since then, Gibbs sampling has been successfully applied to many other interesting genomics and bioinformatics problems, especially haplotype inference and microarray biclustering.
Keywords: Gibbs sampling; sequence motif finding; haplotype inference; microarray biclustering
