Stochastic Causal Tree Schematic. Schematic of the stochastic causal tree method. Blue nodes represent the locus (square) and transcripts (circles) that are currently part of the tree, with causal edges denoted by solid arrows. Optimal transitions for the locus and the four transcripts, Ta, Tb, Tc and Td, are represented by dashed arrows to their respective target transcripts (green circles). The likelihood of any candidate transcript being added to the tree depends on the candidate, its parent, and its grandparent. For example, the likelihood of the candidate transcript Tz being connected to Td is a function of two potentials: ϕ(Td, Tz) and ϕ(Tb, Tz|Td). The potentials for this particular move are depicted in red.)
