I have discovered that underscores are not allowed in variable names,
although this is not by any means the first instance of such a
discovery. Short of going through all my other data, and removing
underscores, is it possible to quote underscores in R? I had something like:
> plot(g\_code ~ sp\_code, data=genes)
Error: syntax error
in mind, but obviously that does not work.
Any thoughts/ideas appreciated.
