Hello! I have transcriptomic data for several different developmental stages of the SAME SPECIES OF INSECT. My goal is to find a set of genes (and the corresponding proteins) that are highly expressed THROUGHOUT the life cycle of the insect.

Should I manually check each set of data or is there some other procedure I can follow? Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks a ton!

There are some softwares designed to handle time series data. Basically you need to do a fuzzy clustering to identify the patterns of gene expression. Few of several are maSigPro, Mfuzz

The transcriptome data is available for each individual stage, so I don't think this can be considered time series data... Anyway, thank you very much for your answer, I will check those R packages out and be right back!
