Hi,I'm bioinformatics student. I have two dataframes (A and B) and I want to convert the row names of the B with hgnc of the A but I don't know how I can do that. I tried with row.names(B)<-A$hgnc but the following message appears: Error in row.names<*tmp*, value = c("MAPK1", "MAPK1", : invalid 'row.names' length. Can someone help me? Thank you!

Hello fp89, you can try using code formating to display some data-structures. It will be easier to understand your request. An other point that might help you posting your questions, you can first giving the actual state of the files, and then, the desired state. Like this, people can take your few lines as example to write the adapted code to your problem. ;)

As hint for your actual code, you are trying to assign a vector of length 42k to a vector of length 1k. That's why R is telling you invalid length.

I have 100 samples (50 tumor and 50 normal) and 1014 significative circuits. I have to find genes included in each subpathway (circuit) so I can obtain expression values for each gene in each sample. I need to cross the two dataframes. Can I do it with merge function? And if so, how? Many thanks Glihm.
