Pebl is a python library and command line application for learning the structure of a Bayesian network given prior knowledge and observations. Pebl includes the following features:

  • Can learn with observational and interventional data
  • Handles missing values and hidden variables using exact and heuristic methods
  • Provides several learning algorithms; makes creating new ones simple
  • Has facilities for transparent parallel execution using several cluster and cloud resources
  • Calculates edge marginals and consensus networks
  • Presents results in a variety of formats

Pebl has been developed at the Systems Biology Lab at the University of Michigan and in available under a permissive MIT-style license.


Pebl is published in the Journal of Machine Learning Research. Please cite the paper if you use Pebl for your work. Abstract and PDF.
