A hybrid parameter estimation algorithm for beta mixtures and applications to methylation state classification
Mixtures of beta distributions are a flexible tool for modeling data with values on the unit interval, such as methylation levels. However, maximum likelihood parameter estimation with beta distributions suffe...
