Hello R users,

I am trying to run a cox model for the prediction of relapse of 80 cancer tumors, taking into account the expression of 17000 genes. The data are large and I retrieve an error:
"Cannot allocate vector of 2.4 Mb". I increase the memory.limit to 4000 (which is the largest supported by my computer) but I still retrieve the error because of other big variables that I have in the workspace. Does anyone know how to overcome this problem?

Many thanks in advance,
