I am trying to generate some simulated counts based on a pilot data we have to determine if increasing the number of samples will give us more power in our experiments.

I have a matrix of raw counts containing gene names on rows and sample names in columns and from this I want to use create_read_numbers function from polyester to generate additional simulated samples. However this comes up with an error and I can't understand what is wrong with it. Any ideas?

The code I am running is as below

WTveh_poly <- Counts[,c("WTVEH1IP","WTVEH2IP","WTVEH3IP")]

WTveh_poly <- subset(WTveh_poly, rowMeans(WTveh_poly) > 1)
params = get_params(WTveh_poly)
custom_readmat = create_read_numbers(mu=params$mu, fit=params$fit,
                                     p0=params$p0, m=dim(WTveh_poly)[1], n=dim(WTveh_poly)[2], 

then the output is

Generating data from baseline model.
Error in, size, replace, prob) : 
  cannot take a sample larger than the population when 'replace = FALSE'
