During B lymphocyte development, immunoglobulin heavy-chain variable (VH), diversity (DH), and joining (JH) segments assemble to generate a diverse antigen receptor repertoire. Here, we have marked the distal VH and DH-JH-Eμ regions with Tet-operator binding sites and traced their 3D trajectories in pro-B cells transduced with a retrovirus encoding(More)
In this thesis, we develop some Bayesian mixture density estimation for univari-ate and multivariate data. We start proposing a repulsive process favoring mixture components further apart. While conducting inferences on the cluster-specific parameters, current frequentist and Bayesian methods often encounter problems when clusters are placed too close(More)
