HTqPCR, changeCtLayout is mislabeling the rows and is unable to return a qPCRset object

I am having problems reformatting my data. My data has several samples on one plate, so I am reading in using the format = "plain" options, and then calling changeCtLayout() to reformat it. I am reading in a 96 well plate that is organized as a 1x84 matrix (several wells not used). For the sake of detail I will be very verbose, and the first few lines of my files are at the bottom of my post. temp <- readCtData(file = "Plate1.txt", path = path, n.features = 84, =1, = list(flag = 3, feature = 5, type = 4, Ct = 6, position =1), format = "plain", header = TRUE) And this works well. The vector that associates the features rows with samples is stored in a file read in by: samples <- read.delim(myFile, header = TRUE, sep = "\t", stringsAsFactors = FALSE)[,"Sample"] > head(samples) [1] "Repl_d4" "Repl_d4" "Repl_d4" "Repl_d4" "Repl_d4" "Repl_d4" I call: changeCtLayout(temp, sample.order = samples) Error in function (storage.mode = c("lockedEnvironment", "environment", : 'AssayData' elements with different rowNames Setting my qPCRset temp to 'q' and my samples vector to 'sample.order' and following the code for the changeCtLayout() function, I found that the error occurs when the rownames are assigned for the variables castnew, flagsnew, and Xnew when they are merged using the new("qPCRset", exprs...) function. >rownames(Xnew) [1] "Actin" "EF" "FRO3" "FSD1" "CSD1" "FER4" "Actin.1" "EF.1" "FRO3.1" "FSD1.1" "CSD1.1" "FER4.1" [13] "Actin.2" "EF.2" "FRO3.2" "FSD1.2" "CSD1.2" "FER4.2" "FSD2" "FSD2.1" "FSD2.2" >rownames(catsnew) [1] "Actin.1" "EF.1" "FRO3.1" "FSD1.1" "CSD1.1" "FER4.1" "Actin.3" "EF.3" "FRO3.3" "FSD1.3" "CSD1.3" "FER4.3" [13] "Actin.5" "EF.5" "FRO3.5" "FSD1.5" "CSD1.5" "FER4.5" "FSD2.6" "FSD2.7" "FSD2.8" > all.equal(rownames(catsnew), rownames(flagsnew)) [1] TRUE cats <- split(, sample.order) looking at the rows of the matrices in cats, all of the variable present in rownames(Xnew) and rownames(catsnew) are present. But when: catsnew <-"cbind", cats) the rownames get mixed up. Thank you for any and all help!
