Hi Susanna, yes, as you feared, you should rerun the first time point so that all time points are run by the same version. Edits should be preserved (although maybe more or probably less edits would be necessary).
And it is really a bad idea to compare across groups where the groups where processed with different software methods (here 5.3 an 6.0). You will not know if the differences that you find come from the methods or are real. Best, Martin > On 13.
