Time Series Analysis Software

License MIT PyPI Python Version tests codecov

A standalone application for analysing time series data, which includes features for processing/labelling/filtering traces and facilitates the detection of hidden states using Hidden Markov Modelling (HMM). It also includes embdedded pre-trained Deep Learning (InceptionTime) models for classifying/labelling traces.

This is still undergoing development, so some features may not work as expected.

This was built by Dr Piers Turner from the Kapanidis Lab, University of Oxford.


You can install TraceAnalyser via PyPI:

conda create –-name TraceAnalyser python==3.9
conda activate TraceAnalyser

pip install TraceAnalyser

You can install TraceAnalyser via [GitHub]:

conda create –-name TraceAnalyser python==3.9
conda activate TraceAnalyser
conda install -c anaconda git
conda update --all

pip install git+

To install MATLAB engine (Windows):

python 3.9 requires MATLAB >= 2021b

MATLAB compatibility:

pip install matlabengine

This will likely fail due to a MATLAB version issue. Read the traceback, and install the recomended verison. Then try again:

pip install matlabengine==XXXX

Terminal Commands

To launch the Trace Analyser App:


To launch an ebFRET instance (requires matlab engine installation):
