Bayesian Network Webserver for Biological Network Modeling

BNW: from data to predictions




BNW has recently been updated. Read more about these updates here.

The Bayesian Network Web Server (BNW) is a comprehensive web server for Bayesian network modeling of biological data sets. It is designed so that users can quickly and seamlessly upload a dataset, learn the structure of the network model that best explains the data, and use the model to understand and make predictions about relationships between the variables in the model. Many real world data sets, including those used to create genetic network models, contain both discrete (e.g., genotypes) and continuous (e.g., gene expression traits) variables, and BNW allows for modeling of these hybrid data sets.
