Dynamic Regulatory Event Mining by iDREM in Large-Scale Multi-omics Datasets During Biotic and Abiotic Stress in Plants

Academic Article


  • The system-wide complexity of genome regulation encoding the organism phenotypic diversity is well understood. However, a major challenge persists about the appropriate method to describe the systematic dynamic genome regulation event utilizing enormous multi-omics datasets. Here, we describe Interactive Dynamic Regulatory Events Miner (iDREM) which reconstructs gene-regulatory networks from temporal transcriptome, proteome, and epigenome datasets during stress to envisage “master” regulators by simulating cascades of temporal transcription-regulatory and interactome events. The iDREM is a Java-based software that integrates static and time-series transcriptomics and proteomics datasets, transcription factor (TF)–target interactions, microRNA (miRNA)–target interaction, and protein–protein interactions to reconstruct temporal regulatory network and identify significant regulators in an unsupervised manner. The hidden Markov model detects specialized manipulated pathways as well as genes to recognize statistically significant regulators (TFs/miRNAs) that diverge in temporal activity. This method can be translated to any biotic or abiotic stress in plants and animals to predict the master regulators from condition-specific multi-omics datasets including host–pathogen interactions for comprehensive understanding of manipulated biological pathways.
