[BioC] Error in calculating P-values with Genefilter function

To whom it may concern,

I am having trouble with the genefilter function in R. I am attempting to extract genes from 7 arrays using a p-value of 0.01 using the following code:


Creating Func7P0.01 works fine, but when I run the genefilter using my data matrix and Func7P0.01 i get the following error.

> Anova7_P0.01<-genefilter(SCDexprs7,Func7P0.01)
Error in if (fstat < p) return(TRUE) : 
  missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed

and when I runtraceback(), I get: 

> traceback()
4: fun(x)
3: FUN(newX[, i], ...)
2: apply(expr, 1, flist)
1: genefilter(SCDexprs7, Func7P0.01)

Im not entirely sure what is going on, but when I extract genes from the same 7 arrays, plus another array (8 arrays total) using the same code structure (below) it works fine.


Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated as I am not sure what else to try.

Thanks in advance!
