If your df contains your data, try

 tmp <- cbind( paste(df[ ,1], df[ ,2], sep=":"),

               paste(df[ ,3], df[ ,4], sep=":") )  tmp <- t( apply(tmp, 1, sort) )

 out <- data.frame( do.call(rbind, strsplit( tmp[,1], split=":" )),

                    do.call(rbind, strsplit( tmp[,2], split=":" )) )
 colnames(out) <- colnames(df)
 out

Regards, Adai
