```Hi Vikas,

Here is one way:

str(df)
df[, "total"] <- rowSums(df[, 3:6])
df[, 3:6] <- apply(df[, 3:6], 2, function(x) x / df[, "total"] * df[,
"new"] * 2)

V1        V2 CaseA CaseC CaseG CaseT new total
1 10 135344109     0     0    24     0  12     1
2 10 135344110     0    24     0     0  12     1
3 10 135344111     0     0    24     0  12     1
4 10 135344112     0     0    24     0  12     1
5 10 135344113     0     0    24     0  12     1
6 10 135344114    24     0     0     0  12     1

Note that I read the data in differently than you did.  This matters.

Cheers,

Josh
