Hi,

I have two matrices of normalized read counts for control and treatment in a time series day1 to day26. I want to calculate distance matrix by Dynamic Time Wrapping but seems too complicated. I did so; who can help for more clarification please? Thanks a lot

```
head(control[,1:4])
MAST2 WWC2 PHYHIPL R3HDM2
Control_D1 6.591024 5.695156 3.388652 5.756384

library(dtw)
Control=dist(control,method="DTW");
Lead=dist(lead,method="DTW");
```

Question is unclear. What package are we using,

`method="DTW"`

? Also, maybe irrelevant, the row ordering is`1, 10, 11,`

not`1,2,3,`

.Thank you,

I want to calculate distance matrix of my time series, I can't figure out how do that

You can't assign elements to a matrix that you haven't pre-allocated. You can't index with more dimensions than your array has, e.g. if it's a matrix, you can only have two indices. I think part of the problem is that you don't know how to program in R.

Also, read the dtw() doc to figure out what the arguments to the function should be.

And avoid duplicating your question, either keep the discussion in the previous thread or in the new question but not both.

The

`dist`

function doesn't have a`dtw`

method! If you are trying to use the "Distance matrix computation" function from the`stats`

package see here: https://stat.ethz.ch/R-manual/R-devel/library/stats/html/dist.htmlYou probabely need something like this:

The OP is trying to compute a dynamic time warping distance as offered in the dtw package. An "almost" answer can be found in my comments in the other post.
