Workshop: Bayesian Methods in Biology


Bayesian inference is a method for integrating new information into probabilistic models. This workshop offers on the one hand an introduction to Bayesian methods and on the other hand shows how these methods can be used in biology.

The workshop on bayesian methods in biology included the following presentations:
