ok so the gct file looks like this:

#1.2 (version number)
7283 19 (matrix size)
Name Description Values
.... ....... ......

How can I tell R to disregard the first two lines and start reading the 3rd line in this gct file. I would just delete them, but I do not know how to open a gct. file

thank you
