I am looking for software (preferably an R package) that can accept a matrix of gene expression values from a time course experiment and then compute a possible gene regulatory network based on the data.

Also I'm looking at aracne2, Califano lab. But would like to try several options.

Thanks! Any others that infer causal relationships from time series data? (Horvath package seems more general, focused on co-expression networks.)

For this case, you need to perform correlation analysis and use of any test statistics (eg. z test) to identify significant co regulation. For this case, you need large sample size (> 10) for reliable result.

I am looking for the same answers. The following is the results of my literature review:

First, three review papers should be checked:

  • Lopes, M. and G. Bontempi (2013). "Experimental assessment of static and dynamic algorithms for gene regulation inference from time series expression data." Front Genet 4: 303.
  • Kim, Y., et al. (2014). "Inference of dynamic networks using time-course data." Brief Bioinform 15(2): 212-228.
  • Liu, Z. P. (2015). "Reverse Engineering of Genome-wide Gene Regulatory Networks from Gene Expression Data." Curr Genomics 16(1): 3-22.

 According to the review paper, several packages are available currently for construct transcription regulatory network from time series expression data:

  • GRNInfer, Huber group LASSO, these two can construct the regulatory network from multiple time series expression data.
  • TDARACNE, DPC.
  • Bayes network: Banjo, BNFinder, GlobalMIT
  • TESLA
  • KELLER
  • ARTIVA

Hope this will help you. Any suggestions on this topic are welcome!

Hi, did you tried RTN package?

ARACNE is pretty good
