TimeView is a MATLAB® program that compares multiple temporal datasets from microarray experiments under two or more conditions, for example, temporal variation of cellular response upon exposure to different drugs. The current paucity of programs designed to efficiently compare and visualise gene expression profiles in such datasets led us to design TimeView, which also enhances data visualisation by plotting the expression profiles of a large number of genes on a single screen. Availability: TimeView is available free of charge to all users at http://hugroup.cems.umn.edu/Research/Genomics/Timeview/ timeview.htm. To use TimeView, users will require access to the commercial software MATLAB® (version 6.5). A help document is available on the TimeView website.
