In science:

However, Yuan and Kendziorski (2006) take an empirical Bayes approach to model estimation instead of modeling the entire posterior distribution of all unknown parameters.
Bayesian testing of many hypotheses $\times$ many genes: A study of sleep apnea
Xg ij ∼ Gamma(cid:18)αi , µg i (cid:19), As mentioned by Newton et al. (2004) and Yuan and Kendziorski (2006), the Gamma distribution is an attractive model for expression data since many popular processing and normalization procedures lead to expression data with approximately constant coefficient of variation.
Bayesian testing of many hypotheses $\times$ many genes: A study of sleep apnea
We see in Figure 1 that there is variability in each parameter which is only captured by our estimation of the full posterior distribution, compared to previous approaches [Newton et al. (2004), Yuan and Kendziorski (2006)] that focussed on point estimates of each parameter.
