Checking for convergence of the MCMC chains: Plots of the Brooks and Gelman shrink factor. These plots show how some of the parameters of the model from different runs of the algorithm (on HNF4α data) reach their stationary distribution after burn-in and therefore the simulated values we use are indeed samples from the posterior distribution of interest. The plotted factors show whether the chains have mixed well by comparing the variance of the simulated values within and between different chains.
