- In this article, we present a general model to deal with the problem of matching multiple objects or configurations of points from a Bayesian point of view. We study both labeled and non labeled cases. Our model generalizes, in terms of non singular affine transformations and multiple configurations, previous two-terms matching models. As a practical application in Bioinformatics, we consider data from a microarray experiment of gorilla, bonobo, and human-cultured fibroblasts. We find out the matchings and the best affine transformation between the projections of genes on a two-dimensional space, obtained by a multidimensional scaling technique.
