Something like:

# Sample data
g1<-c("gene1", "gene2", "gene3", "gene4", "gene5", "gene9", "gene10",
g2<-c("gene6", "gene9", "gene1", "gene2", "gene7", "gene8", "gene9",
"gene1", "gene10")
df1<-cbind(gene=g1, expr=runif(length(g1)))
df2<-cbind(gene=g2, expr=runif(length(g2)))

# Merge
mdf<-merge(df1, df2, by="gene", sort=T)
# Unique list

You may find the "match" command useful and/or the "%in%" opertaor.

Subject: [R] Finding matches in 2 files

I have 2 files containing data analysed by 2 different methods. I would
like to find out which genes appear in both analyses. Can someone show
me how to do this?
