### [R] Calculating frequencies of multiple values in 200 colomns

Hi All I have a dataset of 200 columns and 1000 rows , there are 3 repeated values under each column (7,8,10). I wanted to calculate the frequency of each value under each column and then apply the function maf () given that the frequency of each value is known. I can do the analysis step by step like this :-> ValuesA B C ... 200 1 7 10 7 2 7 8 7 3 10 8 7 4 8 7 10 . . . 1000 For column A : I calculate the frequency for the 3 values as follows : count7 <- length(which(Values$A == 7)) count8 <- length(which(Values$A == 8)) count10 <- length(which(Values$A == 10)) count7 = 2, count8 = 1 , count10= 1. Then, I create a vector and type the frequencies manually : Freq<- c( count7=2 ,count8= 1,count10=1) Then I apply the function maf () :- maf(Freq) This gives me the result I need for column A , could you please help me to perform the analysis for all of the 200 columns at once ?

### [R] Calculating frequencies of multiple values in 200 colomns

This is not a good way to do things! R has many powerful built in functions to do this sort of thing for you. Searching -- e.g. at rseek.org or even a plain old google search -- can help you find them. Also, it looks like you need to go through a tutorial or two to learn more about R's basic functionality. In this case, something like (no reproducible example given, so can't confirm): apply(Values, 2, function(x)maf(tabulate(x))) should be close to what you want .
