Error in as.data.frame.data.frame(hits, hits$`Combined adj. P-value` < : invalid 'row.names', length 0 for a data frame with 3420 rows

Hi there,

I've been having real issue with generating a new data frame for values less than 0.05

df.hits_sig <- hits[,hits$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05]# is giving me 3420 rows with 0 variables when I know there is values below 0.05.

df.hits_sig <- hits[hits$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05,] #s giving me 0 rows with 3 variables when I know there is values below 0.05.

This is really strange and don't know how to solve it. Anyone have any ideas.

Kindest regards,

Chris

I would question what you think you know about the presence of variables <=0.05 in your data.
How do you justify this knowledge ?

hits <- structure(list(`Combined adj. P-value` = c(0.04, 0.06), another_var = c(1, 
                                                                                2)), class = "data.frame", row.names = c(NA, -2L))

df.hits_sig1 <- hits[,hits$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05]
# 0.04 0.06
df.hits_sig2 <- hits[hits$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05,] 
#  Combined adj. P-value another_var
# 1                  0.04           1

hits_no_p <- filter(hits,
                    `Combined adj. P-value`>0.05)

df.hits_sig3 <- hits_no_p[,hits_no_p$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05]
#data frame with 0 columns and 1 row
df.hits_sig4 <- hits_no_p[hits_no_p$`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05,] 
#[1] Combined adj. P-value another_var          
#<0 rows> (or 0-length row.names)

I can see it in the hits data so prior knowledge I guess. I've also done this to show the head rownames

df.hits_sig <- hits[hits$Combined adj. P-value<= 0.05,]
head(df.hits_sig)
[1] Colony.Size.Difference.1 Colony.Size.Difference.2
[3] Combined\nadj. P-value
<0 rows> (or 0-length row.names)

Here is the what the hits data set looks like

head(hits)

Thanks I've done that and i get this

Now getting other errors

library(tidyverse)
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
namespace ‘tibble’ 2.1.3 is already loaded, but >= 3.0.0 is required

(df.hits_sig <- filter(hits,Combined adj. P-value<= 0.05))
Error in filter(hits, Combined adj. P-value <= 0.05) :

I'm not sure how to update the '"tibble", tried update.packages("tibble")
but didn't work.

install.packages("tidyverse")

Sorry, I should have said I did install the packages

I get this:

library(tidyverse)
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
namespace ‘tibble’ 2.1.3 is already loaded, but >= 3.0.0 is required

ok,
i would first try

install.packages("tibble")

Thanks again,

So i restarted the libraries, installed the packages and then loaded the libraries for tibble and tidyverse

my apologies, in tidyverse land, when using the select/filter/mutate verbs etc, non standard variable names within the dataframes should be referenced within quoutation marks, single or double, and not the backticks.

> (df.hits_sig <- filter(hits,"Combined adj. P-value"<= 0.05))

Same issue return no variables. It's very strange

(df.hits_sig <- filter(hits,"Combined adj. P-value"<= 0.05))
[1] Colony.Size.Difference.1 Colony.Size.Difference.2
[3] Combined\nadj. P-value
<0 rows> (or 0-length row.names)

sorry friend, something strange is going on, will try to get to the bottom, can you do this and share the results ?

head(arrange(hits,"Combined adj. P-value"))

I know its super weird

head(arrange(hits,"Combined adj. P-value"))
Error: incorrect size (1) at position 1, expecting : 3420

I've just noticed that when skimr skimmed your hits df the p value variable has a newline character in the name ? That's super strange.
Can you try
names(hits) <- c("a","b","c") for simplicity sake and see if that makes a difference to the rest of the functions we've been trying to use?

Yep that was the issue, why would that affect it?

now trying to link it to my ggplot with different issues but will make a different post for that.

Thank you so much.

the hits data you shared has 6 rows all with p values close to 1

heres an idea. install the skimr package.
then skimr::skim(hits), it should have useful information about the distribution of the P value column

try a tidyverse approach

library(tidyverse)
(df.hits_sig <- filter(hits,`Combined adj. P-value`<= 0.05))
