This is basic R data handling, I suggest you try out some things as you will need this skill regularily in your career, also to filter out things you are interested in after your analysis.

Thank for your suggestion! As bioinformatic rookie, these basis problems confused me a lot.

You could use tidyverse to do these manipulations, I suggest you to read this: In the 5th chapter, you will find easy ways to do it. As @ATpoint mentioned, you will need these skills if you are going to work as a bioinformatician/data analyst. Tips : spread/gather functions from tidyverse/tidyr will help you do what you want.
