Biolearn is a general package for applying probabilistic graphical models to biological applications. Biolearn release 1.0 is concentrated on structure learning for bayesian networks; future releases are expected to include other types of graphical models, support inference applications, and allow plug-and-play addition of new types of probability distributions, scoring functions and search algorithms.
