Description

Elisa assay of DNase

The DNase data frame has 176 rows and 3 columns of data
obtained during development of an ELISA assay for the recombinant
protein DNase in rat serum.

Usage

DNase

Format

An object of class
c("nfnGroupedData", "nfGroupedData", "groupedData", "data.frame")
containing the following columns:

Run

an ordered factor with levels 10 < ... < 3
indicating the assay run.

conc

a numeric vector giving the known concentration of the
protein.

density

a numeric vector giving the measured optical density
(dimensionless) in the assay. Duplicate optical density
measurements were obtained.

Details

This dataset was originally part of package nlme, and that has
methods (including for [, as.data.frame, plot and
print) for its grouped-data classes.

coplot(density ~ conc | Run, data = DNase,
       show.given = FALSE, type = "b")
coplot(density ~ log(conc) | Run, data = DNase,
       show.given = FALSE, type = "b")
## fit a representative run
fm1 <- nls(density ~ SSlogis( log(conc), Asym, xmid, scal ),
    data = DNase, subset = Run == 1)
## compare with a four-parameter logistic
fm2 <- nls(density ~ SSfpl( log(conc), A, B, xmid, scal ),
    data = DNase, subset = Run == 1)
