This is the development version of splineTimeR; for the stable release version, see splineTimeR.

Time-course differential gene expression data analysis using spline regression models followed by gene association network reconstruction

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

This package provides functions for differential gene expression analysis of gene expression time-course data. Natural cubic spline regression models are used. Identified genes may further be used for pathway enrichment analysis and/or the reconstruction of time dependent gene regulatory association networks.
