Hello,

Relatively new to R and have run into a problem with dplyr filter. I'm trying to sort a dataframe by adjusted pvalues:

df
1   8.43080750411049e-06
2   1
3   0.155759491784278
4   0.504522013356758
5   4.93250063257857e-05
6   0.00346659769502134
7   2.94005754313656e-06
8   0.00010367418530406
9   8.49263820241248e-05
10  0.248619819594542
11  0.178341463282468
12  0.00345343780446894
13  2.1265862352706e-38
14  0.0118549063372728
15  8.19090405768653e-08

    filtered_df <- filter(df, padj < 0.05) 

filtered_df
1   0.00346659769502134
2   0.00010367418530406
3   0.00345343780446894
4   0.0118549063372728

filtered_df doesn't include any of the values shown in df that R has displayed in scientific notation. Am I doing something silly here? Any help much appreciated!

I would check if your data is actually numeric and if not - transform it using as.numeric()
