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. for each column), I want to plot a graph with an average of replicates of each genotype + SE Expected line graph pattern plot with SE

**i.e.** for an e.g. For Gene A, at a particular time point (0/1/3/5) I want to draw a graph with all the genotypes (X, Y, Z); should be the3 lines in the plot looking like above plots.

How is this possible using R? How can I include Std Error? Using loops can I generate 50 graphs (for each raw separate graph)?

Values you furnished above large deviations. See if following plot works. Data is taken from OP:

Thank you cpad0112

I'm working with your codes. Im having a error after

df4=summarySE(df2, measurevar="Values", groupvars=c("time","Gene","genotype"))Error in summarySE(df2, measurevar = "Values", groupvars = c("time", "Gene", : could not find function "summarySE"Could you please help me with this

sorry..forgot to add following line:

`library(Rmisc)`

. SummarySE function is from Rmisc library. Load Rmisc library. Updated the code.Thanks, cpad0112 , Sorry to bother I get another error message

Error in combine_vars(data, params$plot_env, vars, drop = params$drop) : At least one layer must contain all variables used for facettingWould appreciate your help :)

well, if you could post script here (ggplot) it would help. Check if you have recent versions of ggplot.

I see, I do not have ggplot. Is this different form ggplot2.

Where can I get this package? Googling doesn't help :(

library(tidyr) df1 <- gather(df,"Transitions","Values",-Targets) library(stringr) df2 <- cbind(df1,str_split_fixed(df1$Transitions,"_",3)) colnames(df2)[4:6]=c("genotype","time","replicate") library(Rmisc) df4 <- summarySE(df2, measurevar="Values", groupvars=c("time","Targets","genotype")) ggplot(df4, aes(time, Values, group = genotype, color = genotype)) + geom_line() + geom_point() + facet_wrap( ~ Gene) + labs(title = "Gene Expression vs time", x = "Time (d)", y = "Area_counts") + theme_linedraw() + theme( plot.title = element_text(hjust = 0.5, size = 20), strip.text = element_text(size = 20), axis.title.y = element_text(size = 20), axis.title.x = element_text(size = 20), axis.text.x = element_text(size = 14), axis.text.y = element_text(size = 14) ) + geom_ribbon(aes(ymax = Values + sd, ymin = Values - sd), alpha = 0.5, fill = "grey70", colour=NA )

Issue with the code is here: df2 <- cbind(df1,str_split_fixed(df1$Transitions,"_",3)). When you split the string (example: mut9_S1_3d_2) with _, you would get 4 strings and you are selecting 3. I meant ggplot2 not ggplot.

code:

with error bar only (mean +/- SD):

For error bars, replace following code in the code with one that is highlighted in red below:

with

`geom_pointrange(aes(ymax=Values+sd, ymin=Values-sd))`

Thank you cpad0112 Thank you for helping me this much even though you do not know me personally. I will never forget your help. When the right time comes I promise I'll acknowledge all the people help me without knowing me. I wish if I know who you are (being anonymous is the best for me like dummy only). I appreciate your time and kindness!!!

Wishing you the best!!!No problem and thank you. Which ever post helped you in resolving issue, mark it as answer. Good luck with your research.
