Hi, after I added gene description to y <- DGEList(counts=rawCountTable, group=group, genes = merged.descriptions) the gene names have replaced by numbers

How is it possible to get back the gene names in heatmap.2?

Best wishes,

I think I found the solution rownames(logCPM) <- as.character(row.names(y)).

Actually logCPM already had those row names when you created it. Then you removed the row names by

rownames(logCPM) <- row.names(y$genes$genes)

That removes the row names because you don't have any annotation column called "genes".
