Hi everyone, This might be a very simple question. I'm following this microarray workflow- https://www.semel.ucla.edu/sites/default/files/coppola-lab/CoppolaExampleCode.pdf.

These are the R codes I have done so far.

Microarray.MSCs <- read.delim("/Volumes/EDEN/phd/Microarray MSCs.txt", header=FALSE)

dim(Microarray.MSCs)
[1] 32408    14

V1        V2        V3        V4        V5        V6       V7        V8        V9

It says that I now need to read in the sample info on page 2. This is stored in the targets.txt file however I only have one file of data, an excel spreadsheet that I converted into a txt file. Does anyone know what this means or how I might make one.

Also does anyone know how to remove the non-numeric-alike variable(s) in data frame: V2, V3, V4, V5, V6, V7, V8, V9, V10, V11, V12, V13.

Thankyou!

• You have to copy the Table 1 (Page 3) and make a tab separated text file.
• The non-numeric data looks like header, You can remove them using

names(Microarray.MSCs) <- NULL

Thankyou for your help. I'm not sure what you mean. Do I create a seperate table (text file) using ProbeName and GeneSymbol columns?

Also it removed the V1,V2,V3,V4 etc. but it still comes up with Error in Math.data.frame(Microarray.MSCs) : non-numeric-alike variable(s) in data frame: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

thankyou

I just have another question, is Microarray.MSCs equivalent to the data file mydataRAW in the workflow? Also what is the signal column (mentioned on page 2)? And in the workflow on page 2 what does the 8 and 2 signify in the r code mydata<-mydataRAW[,seq(1,(nsampl*8),8)+2]

Sorry for all the questions

I am sorry, but you need to brush up your basics. Such as what is metadata, what is signal in microarray , genotypes, treatment e.t.c. Whatever you have asked here is well explained in the document.

Thankyou for your response, sorry I'm new to bioinformatics and am struggling to understand.
