Like the forward algorithm, we can use the backward algorithm to calculate the marginal likelihood of a hidden Markov model (HMM). Also like the forward algo...

The Viterbi algorithm identifies a single path of hidden Markov model (HMM) states. This is the path which maximizes the joint probability of the observed da...

The Viterbi algorithm is used to efficiently infer the most probable “path” of the unobserved random variable in an HMM. In the CpG islands case, this is the...
