A first order variable dependence (FOVD) probabilistic graphical model is introduced to capture the complex inter-event dependencies that are present in DNA sequencing data. In this framework, DNA base-calling is addressed as a parameter estimation problem using maximum likelihood methods. The FOVD model accounts for dependencies between neighboring alleles and statistically characterizes the size of signal peaks. Our experimental results suggest that the resulting unsupervised classification… CONTINUE READING
