From: NITPicker: selecting time points for follow-up experiments

Fig. 1

Time point selection is an important part of experimental design. a Here is an example of a multi-factor experimental design. b Given a set of high resolution time courses, sampled at τn we try to find a subset of time points tm for future follow-up investigations. c In this paper, we define good time points as those that enable us to best infer the shape of the function. d The time points in a high resolution time course are represented by nodes. In the case shown (i), there are four time points in the high resolution time course. (ii) In the follow-up experiment, time points 2 and 4 are chosen, corresponding to a particular path through the network. The length of this path is the sum of edge(0,2), edge(2,4) and edge(4,5)
