Hi Sergei, You can't start a variable name with a number in R, so you can either change to something like day.025, or you can construct your contrasts matrix by hand, using something like contrast <- matrix(c(-1,0,0,1,0,0,0,-1,0,0,0,1,0,0,-1,0,0,0,0,1,0,-1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1 ), ncol=4, dimnames=list(colnames(design), paste(colnames(design)[c(4:7)], colnames(design)[1])) I often construct the contrasts matrix by hand as it gives you more control over the dimnames attribute. Best, Jim BTW, you only need to send a question once. Sending it thrice may well result in no response ;-D Siarhei Manakou wrote: > Hello, > > Im a first year PhD student in Sanger institute - just started working with bioconductor and encoutered problem while building a contrast matrix.
