Bayesian method uses the prior knowledge and can realize the accurate computation, and it is more and more used in the research of gene locus mining, for example, using Bayesian theory to mine the disease associated loci [17], identifying pig nipple number related genes [18], detecting gene loci associated with breast cancer [19], and detecting the interaction between specific phenotypic traits loci (Zhang et al.
