Dynamic changes in biological systems can be captured by measuring molecular expression from different levels (e.g., genes and proteins) across time. Integration of such data aims to identify molecules that show similar expression changes over time; such molecules may be co-regulated and thus involved in similar biological processes. Combining data sources presents a systematic approach to study molecular behaviour. It can compensate for missing data in one source, and can reduce false… 
Rewiring of the Liver Transcriptome across Multiple Time-Scales Is Associated with the Weight Loss-Independent Resolution of NAFLD Following RYGB
A novel graph network-based analysis workflow designed to identify modules enriched with biomolecules that share common dynamic profiles provides a framework for identifying novel drug targets for NAFLD and other metabolic syndrome co-morbidities.
timeOmics: an R package for longitudinal multi-omics data integration
The R package timeOmics is introduced, a generic analytical framework for the integration of longitudinal multi-omics data that includes pre-processing, modelling and clustering to identify molecular features strongly associated with time.
A generic multivariate framework for the integration of microbiome longitudinal studies with other data types
A generic data-driven framework is proposed to integrate different types of longitudinal data measured on the same biological specimens with microbial communities data, and select key temporal features with strong associations within the same sample group to address some of the analytical challenges of microbiome-derived data.
Integrative analyses to investigate the link between microbial activity and metabolites degradation during anaerobic digestion.
Five main groups of features were successfully evidenced, including cadaverine degradation found to be associated with the activity of microorganisms from the order Clostridiales and the genus Methanosarcina, highlighting the potential of data integration towards a comprehensive understanding of AD microbiota.
Integrative analyses to investigate the link between microbial activity and metabolites degradation during anaerobic digestion
The link between microbial activity and substrate degradation in a lab-scale anaerobic co-digestion experiment is investigated, including cadaverine degradation found to be associated with the activity of microorganisms from the order Clostridiales and the genus Methanosarcina.
Lag Penalized Weighted Correlation for Time Series Clustering
Motivation The similarity or distance measure used for clustering can generate intuitive and interpretable clusters when it is tailored to the unique characteristics of the data. In time series

DTW4Omics: Comparing Patterns in Biological Time Series
The DTW4Omics tool is implemented, a tool for performing DTW in R that extends existing R scripts for DTW making them applicable for “omics” datasets where thousands entities may need to be compared with a range of markers and endpoints.
maSigPro: a Method to Identify Significantly Differential Expression Profiles in Time-Course Microarray Experiments
This work proposes a statistical procedure to identify genes that show different gene expression profiles across analytical groups in time-course experiments by adjusting a global regression model with all the defined variables to identify differentially expressed genes.
Significance analysis of time course microarray experiments.
A significance method for analyzing time course microarray studies that can be applied to the typical types of comparisons and sampling schemes and shows that as many as 47% of the genes change with age in a manner more complex than simple exponential growth or decay.
SMARTS: reconstructing disease response networks from multiple individuals using time series gene expression data
Scalable Models for the Analysis of Regulation from Time Series (SMARTS), a method integrating static and time series data from multiple individuals to reconstruct condition-specific response networks in an unsupervised way, was developed and applied to analyze human response to influenza and mouse brain development.
Detecting time periods of differential gene expression using Gaussian processes: an application to endothelial cells exposed to radiotherapy dose fraction
A novel Bayesian likelihood ratio test is proposed to estimate the differential expression time periods and a novel non-stationary Gaussian process is introduced as the underlying expression model, with major improvements on model fitness on perturbation and stress experiments.
Beyond synexpression relationships: local clustering of time-shifted and inverted gene expression profiles identifies new, biologically relevant interactions.
It is found that genes strongly related by local clustering were considerably more likely than random to have a known interaction or a similar cellular role, which suggests that local clustersering may be useful in functional annotation of uncharacterized genes.
Methods for time series analysis of RNA-seq data with application to human Th17 cell differentiation
A novel statistical methodology, DyNB, is presented for analyzing time-course RNA-seq data and qRT-PCR is used to validate differential expression and differentiation efficiencies for selected genes and identifies several known and novel genes involved in Th17 differentiation.
Detection and interpretation of metabolite–transcript coresponses using combined profiling data
It is shown that comembership between metabolites and genes can be predicted for numerous KEGG pathways; this opens opportunities for the detection of transcriptionally regulated pathways and novel metabolically related genes.
An improved empirical bayes approach to estimating differential gene expression in microarray time-course data: BETR (Bayesian Estimation of Temporal Regulation)
A flexible random-effects model is presented that improves the ability to detect genes that have sustained differential expression over more than one time point, and has increased power to detect subtle differential expression in time-series data.
Classifying short gene expression time-courses with Bayesian estimation of piecewise constant functions
It is demonstrated that appropriate reduction of model complexity can result in substantial improvements both in classification performance and running time and a Bayesian approach to parameter estimation and inference helps to cope with the short, but highly multivariate time-courses.
