Dear Paco,

You might want to have a look at the maSigPro package. The maSigPro 
method uses regression to analyze time-series data. The program allows 
you to choose a polynomical degree to model more or less complex 
patterns. You have many time points and no replication and this is in 
principle OK for maSigPro but you should be careful with overfitting. 
You might expect given patterns to occur and you can use this 
information to choose the polynomila degree. To start with I would try 
values of 3 and 4 and see how your results look like. If you have any 
doubts do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards
