Hello, I'm trying to understand how to analyze microarray data with R and Bioconductor. I found this quite nice and complete course for debutant (both for R and microarray analysis) : Link

However, I'm stuck with "Exercise 8 : create a heat map of normalized intensities of the first 50 genes using ggplot()" in the "Tutorial: Comparing two groups of samples"

So briefly, I came to the point where I have RMA normalized expression data in a data matrix, obtained with :

data = ReadAffy(celfile.path=celpath)
data.rma = rma(data)
data.matrix = exprs(data.rma)

Then, here is the part of code in the correction that block for me to create the heatmap :

#Exercise8: create a heat map of the first 50 genes using ggplot()
sampleNames = vector()
featureNames = vector()
heatlogs = vector()
for (i in 1:6)
sampleNames = c(sampleNames,rep(ph@data[i,1],50))
featureNames = c(featureNames,rownames(data.matrix[100:150,]))
heatlogs = c(heatlogs,data.matrix[100:150,i])
heatData = data.frame(norm_logInt=heatlogs,sampleName=sampleNames,featureName=featureNames)
dataHeat = ggplot(heatData, aes(sampleName,featureName))
dataHeat + geom_tile(aes(fill=norm_logInt)) + 
scale_fill_gradient(low="green", high="red")

More precisely, it's the heatData that don't work, returning this error :

Error in data.frame(norm_logInt = heatlogs, sampleName = sampleNames,  : 
  arguments imply differing number of rows : 306, 300

So I kind of understand what is happening here, I have between sampleNames, featureNames and heatlogs a different number of rows. However, I can't figure out where or what is the probleme above this

In order for you to see them :

Thank you for your help !

Have a think how many entries are there in data.matrix[100:150, i]

How many would there be in data.matrix[100:101, i] ?

That was it ! Ok, I really need to improve my R skills before going deeper in the microarray analysis ! Thank you !

Edit, actually, to have it correct with the exercises, so in order to have 50 genes, and not 49, I just need to do this :

sampleNames = c(sampleNames,rep(ph@data[i,1],51))
featureNames = c(featureNames,rownames(data.matrix[100:150,]))
heatlogs = c(heatlogs,data.matrix[100:150,i])

I still think you're mixing up fences and fenceposts there. Or perhaps the exercise is.

What do you mean ? I just follow the exercise, because it was a nice step by step exercise, with quite good explanation of the code. But I can't really say if it's correct or not. Maybe you know better trainings ?
