To facilitate the benchmarking of different methods, we present a novel Snakemake workflow, called Benchpress for producing scalable, reproducible, and platform-independent benchmarks of structure learning algorithms for probabilistic graphical models.
On the other hand, the junction-tree collapser provides a complementary operation for removing vertices in the underlying decomposable graph of a junction tree, while maintaining the junction tree property.

The theoretical properties of the algorithm are investigated, showing in particular that the refreshment step improves the algorithm performance in terms of asymptotic variance of the estimated distribution.

The main contribution of this article is a new prior distribution over directed acyclic graphs, which gives larger weight to sparse graphs.
