If you are having questions about simple things like subsetting 
matrices, I would highly recommend reading 'An Introduction to R', which 
comes with R. You can get to it by typing


at an R prompt, and then choosing the 'Manuals' link.

You won't get very far without knowing how to do simple manipulations 
like this. For now, please note that you can subset matrices in numerous 
ways, one of which is by passing a character vector of the row names:

subtable <- DGEExact$table[c("AS123645","AF239456", "AG324567"),]
