Question: How to use tidyr package to average replicate data for different time points and plot each gene separately?

**170**wrote:I have a data set of >100 different samples. Samples are from different genotypes (e.g. X, Y, Z) and 4 different time points (T0,1,2,3) with 3 biological replicates (R1,2,3). I'm measuring values for 50 different genes (in raws).

For each gene (i.e. each column), I want to plot a graph with an average of replicates of each genotype + SE I would like to do this by creating a new data frame; containing for each set of replicates the mean and Std Error. How is this possible using tidyr package? How can I include Std Error? How can I improve this coding?

```
data.mean<- data.frame(matrix(nrows=50)) for(col in seq(1,length(colnames(data)), by=3)) {data.mean <-cbind(data.mean,apply(subset(data, select=seq(col,length.out = 3)),1,mean, na.rm = TRUE)) colnames(data.mean)[ncol(data.mean)] <- colnames(data)[col]}
```

```

11kcould you provide us with a minimal reproducible dataset using

`dput`

function in R (just copy paste the results of`dput(df)`

here ;`df`

is your dataframe)8.1kHi Nicolas, if you don't mind, I've emailed sample data file for you. You can use it public.

170BIOAWY : Please post a sample of the data here. We encourage all communication to stay on the forum. I suggest that you edit the original post and add the data there.

71k@genomax My apologies, I'm not aware how to enter this data here! Can I attach CSV file.

170You don't need to attach the full file. Can you use the command @Nicolas gave (

`dput(df)`

) and post the results here?71kI'm sorry I could not do this :( error comes, I'm happy to give sample data file, if it possible attached

170Oh well. Hopefully you emailed the file to right @Nicolas. He can post the data excerpt when he posts a solution.

71kI've tried, hope that will help
