I have a small dataset containing five genes and their expression at 20 different time points, I want to construct the transcriptional regulatory network based on the data. Are there any tools or tutorials available to do this? I would much prefer tutorials.
I was finally successful to do this using both of the following approaches, I found the first one to be easier to work with:
