# Fully coherent search on glitching data using MCMC
This example applies the basic [fully coherent
search](, to the glitching signal data set created in
search using MCMC](, to the glitching signal data set created in
[make fake data](]). The aim here is to illustrate the effect
such a signal can have on a fully-coherent search. The complete script for this
