I would like to find the differentially expressed genes for several variables using the limma package for several groups.
-- output of sessionInfo():
I have the rma normalized matrix in the following format :
ID_REF GSM362180 GSM362181 GSM362188 GSM362189 GSM362192
244901 5.094871713 4.626623079 4.554272515 4.748604391 4.759221647

where the different columns correspond to four different types of promoters and each of the four promoters has a biological replicate so totally there are 8 columns.
I tried using the Limma package to find the differentially expressed genes across several promoters ( with replicates) and I always get an error as Iam new to r and unable to understand it fully .
This is the code that I used:
Group <- factor(c("p1", "p1", "p2", "p2", "p3","p3","p3","p4","p4"), levels = c("GSM362180","GSM362181","GSM362188","GSM362189","GSM362192","GSM362193","GSM362194","GSM362197","GSM362198"))
design <- model.matrix(~0 + Group)
colnames(design) <- c("GSM362180","GSM362181","GSM362188","GSM362189","GSM362192","GSM362193","GSM362194","GSM362197","GSM362198")
fit <- lmFit(modified, design)
where modified is the rma normalized data matrix as inputted in the above format.
I get the following error:
Coefficients not estimable: GSM362180 GSM362181 GSM362188 GSM362189 GSM362192 GSM362193 GSM362194 GSM362197 GSM362198
Error in lm.fit(design, t(M)) : 0 (non-NA) cases
