Just use a list, not a dataframe. They can hold any objects, and can
hold them by name if necessary.
I haven't followed through your example, but the start of it could be
done like this:
mylist <- list(F4087 = c(234,1234,65,34,624,345),
F4287 = c(3423,543,6768,867,945,3456,5634,6543,345))
and then you can extract F4287 as mylist[["F4287"]].
