Detection of DE genes in time series data using impulse models

Bioconductor version: 3.12

ImpulseDE is suited to capture single impulse-like patterns in high throughput time series datasets. By fitting a representative impulse model to each gene, it reports differentially expressed genes whether across time points in a single experiment or between two time courses from two experiments. To optimize the running time, the code makes use of clustering steps and multi-threading.
