Main Article Content


The BayesNetBP package has been developed for probabilistic reasoning and visualization in Bayesian networks with nodes that are purely discrete, continuous or mixed (discrete and continuous). Probabilistic reasoning enables a user to absorb information into a Bayesian network and make queries about how the probabilities within the network change in light of new information. The package was developed in the R programming language and is freely available from the Comprehensive R Archive Network. A shiny app with Cytoscape widgets provides an interactive interface for evidence absorption, queries, and visualizations.
