When modeling coexpression networks from high-throughput time course data, Pearson Correlation Coefficient (PCC) is one of the most effective and popular similarity functions. However, its reliability is limited since it cannot capture non-linear interactions and time shifts. Here we propose to overcome these two issues by employing a novel similarity function, Dynamic Time Warping Maximal Information Coefficient (DTW-MIC), combining a measure taking care of functional interactions of signals (MIC) and a measure identifying time lag (DTW). By using the Hamming-Ipsen-Mikhailov (HIM) metric to quantify network differences, the effectiveness of the DTW-MIC approach is demonstrated on a set of four synthetic and one transcriptomic datasets, also in comparison to TimeDelay ARACNE and Transfer Entropy.

Abstract

When modeling coexpression networks from high-throughput time course data, Pearson Correlation Coefficient (PCC) is one of the most effective and popular similarity functions. However, its reliability is limited since it cannot capture non-linear interactions and time shifts. Here we propose to overcome these two issues by employing a novel similarity function, Dynamic Time Warping Maximal Information Coefficient (DTW-MIC), combining a measure taking care of functional interactions of signals (MIC) and a measure identifying time lag (DTW). By using the Hamming-Ipsen-Mikhailov (HIM) metric to quantify network differences, the effectiveness of the DTW-MIC approach is demonstrated on a set of four synthetic and one transcriptomic datasets, also in comparison to TimeDelay ARACNE and Transfer Entropy.
