In vivo and metabolomics-related magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) holds great promise for elucidating the biochemical and metabolic pathway disruptions underlying various states of disease, pathology, and physiologic stress and dysfunction.  Algorithms based on Bayesian probability theory provide the optimal means for analysis of MRS data.  Software programs that run Bayesian analysis were developed at Washington University by Dr. G. Larry Bretthorst. The combination of the server and client software is called the "Bayesian Analysis of Common NMR Problems."
