Bayesian Group Sparse Multi-Task Regression

Fits a Bayesian group-sparse multi-task regression model using Gibbs sampling. The hierarchical prior encourages shrinkage of the estimated regression coefficients at both the gene and SNP level. The model has been extended to a spatial model that allows for two type correlation in neuroimaging genetics data and been applied successfully to imaging phenotypes of dimension up to 100; it can be used more generally for multivariate (non-imaging) phenotypes.
