## Re: statistical test for time course data

Dear Gordon, Thank you very much for the clarification. Now that I think of it, the one-against all is straightforward. However, If there are any worked examples you could point me towards for polynomial and spline modeling of the time series I would greatly appreciate it. I am especially interested in testing the hypothesis that the temporal behavior of 2 treatments are different.

I am not sure off hand, how to do this in R. If you implement this in R and do it for all the rows, it may be the test that you want. If you do this, you will be forgoing the empirical Bayesian increase in accuracy in Limma or the explicit temporal modeling in EDGE, but that is up to you. If you do this, you should current for false discoveries. > > limma can test for a single observation as an outlier by creating a design matrix column specific for that observation.
