Probabilistic models for bacterial taxonomy
2001 (English)In: International Statistical Review, ISSN 0306-7734, Vol. 69, no 2, 249-276 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
We give a survey of different partitioning methods that have been applied to bacterial taxonomy. We introduce a theoretical framework, which makes it possible to treat the various models in a unified way. The key concepts of our approach are prediction and storing of microbiological information in a Bayesian forecasting setting. We show that there is a close connection between classification and probabilistic identification and that, in fact, our approach ties these two concepts together in a coherent way.
