There are different biological methods that have been developed over the years for analysis of the 3D structure of the DNA. Few computational and statistical methods have, however, been developed to analysis data generated using the Hi-C method. We follow statistical methodology to explore the Hi-C data. The Hi-C data is well suited to be analyzed using a finite mixture model. The Potts model, a hidden Markov random field model, was employed to analyze the hidden (latent) components. The hidden components through the Potts model can be categorized into k components (k = 2,3…,K). Using the Metropolis-within-Gibbs approach to analyze the data, the proposed method was able to detect interactions (short and long range) and loops. A large part of the significant interactions that we detect are found within Topological Associated Domains, which is one of the 3D structures known to occur in Hi-C data.
