The paper proposes a Bayesian method for biclustering with applications to gene

We begin by embedding bicluster analysis into the framework of a plaid model with random

The resulting posterior, which is asymptotically equivalent to a penalized likelihood, can attenuate

algorithm for sampling posteriors, in which we estimate the cluster memberships of all genes

makes the estimation of the Bayesian plaid model computationally feasible and efficient.

expression data sets. The numerical results show that our proposal substantially outperforms

our method to two yeast gene expression data sets, we identify several new biclusters which

show the enrichment of known annotations of yeast genes.
