TiCoNE

Time Course Network Enricher is an interactive clustering method for time-series data
TiCoNE is a tool for the combined analysis of time series expression data together with biological networks. Check out the web site ([https://ticone.compbio.sdu.dk]) for a screen cast and step-by-step tutorials. TiCoNE accepts time resolution expression data tables (for one or more replicates, patients, or samples) and maps the time courses onto the genes/proteins in a selected Cytoscape network. Afterwards, one may use TiCoNE to cluster the time series sets (i.e. sets of time courses for each gene) iteratively. It provides functionality to interfere with the clustering iterations in an expert-supervised manner (see tutorial). TiCoNE computes error rates, p-values, permutations, etc. on the fly and allows the time course data sets to be sorted and investigated (merging, splitting, noise reduction). Finally, one may enrich the data sets by selecting gene clusters with similar time course behavior, which will be mapped onto the loaded network in order to find sub-networks enriched with genes that have related expression patterns over time.

1.2.74

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- Bugfix: In case of very large networks, permutations for p-value calculation of connectivity were silently failing, leading to incorrect and very small p-values;

1.2.73

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- Bugfix: For certain inputs, the connectivity expected edges and p-values were not calculated correctly; - Bugfix: Formula for directed expected edges between clusters was incorrect; - GUI: The edge table of the cluster connectivity networks now contain the cluster names; - Improvement: Import initial clustering from table now keeps the cluster IDs specified in the table; - Improvement: Most results now take much less memory than before; this should lead to a better usability and reponsiveness of Cytoscape when using TiCoNE with a lot of results or big data sets;

1.2.72

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- Bugfix: PDF summary of all iterations was written to wrong path;

1.2.71

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- Bugfix: Connectivity results were constantly overestimating the expected number of edges due to the usage of a knn-imputation of missing joined node degrees - removed the imputation for now; - GUI: Changed the layout of connectivity networks a bit, i.e. added more infos to the edges such as p-values or expected edges; - GUI: The network node coloring of clusters now creates a visual style, such that it is not lost every time the style of the network is manually changed;

1.2.70

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- Adapted cluster connectivity p-value calculation: P-values are now with respect to observing an as extreme log-odds ratio, instead of the absolute number of edges between a pair of clusters; - Added export function for clusters of all iterations to the cluster summary panel; - Results (clusterings, comparisons, connectivities) can now be renamed by right-clicking on the tab; - GUI: Coloring of clusters changed: Clusters are now not collored according to their number in their clustering, but according to order of creation across all clusterings; this leads to more different colors being used in several clusterings; - GUI: Using collapsible panels to hide and group options and information;

1.2.69

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

1.2.68

Works with Cytoscape 3.2

Release Notes

- New: Added two-sided permutation test for connectivity, now also cluster pairs with very low number of edges are considered significant; - New: The permutation function (object-wise / globally) can be chosen for clustering comparisons; - New: The edge swap factor influencing how many edge swaps are performed for each permuted network can be set by the user; - New: Initial clustering can now be imported from a table: One column containing the object id, a second column the cluster id; - Bugfix Edge crossover: We did not add a random edge from S to T, if it was already present in the original network; this lead to biased p-values; - Bugfix Edge crossover: We always kept source and target of the two randomly picked edges as we got them from Cytoscape; this could lead to biases if edges between pairs of clusters were stored preferrably in one direction in the table than the other; - Bugfix: Fixed variance filter; - Bugfix: Hiding and showing TiCoNE tabs on the control panel did not work properly when there were tabs in the result panel to the left of the TiCoNE tabs; - Bugfix: One empty, unused edge was added between each pair of clusters to undirected connectivity network; - Improved cluster p-values when using Euclidian distance; - GUI: Added better progress updates during "Iterations until convergence"; - GUI: Added button to cluster connectivity results panel to create connectivity networks; - GUI: Showing creation date for all clustering, comparison and connectivity results; - GUI: Showing number of permutations and edge swap factor on results panel for connectivity analysis if p-values were calculated; - GUI: Some cosmetical fixes and terminological changes;
