Abstract
The aim of this article is to present an application of Bayesian networks for discovery of affinity relationships based on genetic data. The presented solution uses a search and score algorithm to discover the Bayesian network structure which best fits the data i.e. the alleles of single nucleotide polymorphisms detected by DNA microarrays. The algorithm perceives structure learning as a combinatorial optimization problem. It is a randomized local search algorithm, which uses a Bayesian-Dirichlet scoring function. The algorithm's testing procedure encompasses tests on synthetic data, generated from given Bayesian networks by a forward sampling procedure as well as tests on real-world genetic data. The comparison of Bayesian networks generated by the application and the genetic evidence data confirms the usability of the presented methods.
