Defines functions fitCellGrowths

Documented in fitCellGrowths

#' Fit growth curves for multiple wells
#' Essentially a wrapper for \code{\link{fitCellGrowth}}. The function gets a well object and fits
#' a growth curve on all wells. It computes the doubling frequency observed in a well and extracts
#' the maximal growth rate ( 1/minimal doubling time).
#' The raw values from the machine might not be directly optical densities (OD),
#' which is needed to infer doubling time. Calibration functions for each machine can be
#' provided to map raw values into OD using the \code{calibration} parameter.
#' If the parameter plot.folder is set, the function creates a folder within plot.folder
#' for each file in the well object. For each well a plot is written into that folder,
#' named \code{well_id.png}. 
#' @title Fit multiple growth curves
#' @param well data.frame with mandatory columns directory, filename, well. See \code{\link{wellDataFrame}}
#' @param plot.folder see details
#' @param model model to choose for fitting growth curve
#' @param fileParser Converts the file generated by the machine to
#' proper R format. See \code{\link{readYeastGrower}} for details.
#' @param xlab plot parameter
#' @param ylab plot parameter
#' @param scaleX useful if you want to get the doubling in another unit, e.g. days instead
#' of seconds.
#' @param scaleY \code{function} applied to the calibrated data.
#' @param calibration \code{function} or \code{list} of \code{functions}. If function, calibration
#' is applied to all raw data. If list, the well dataframe must contain a column \code{machine}.
#' Depending on that column the according function in the list is applied to the raw data. See details
#' @param getWellIds function or vector. If function its parameter is
#' the return value of fileParser. It should return a vector containing
#' the well ids (e.g. A01, A02, ...). You can set the well ids vector directly.
#' See \code{\link{getWellIdsTecan}}.
#' @param locfit.h bandwidth parameter for local polynomial fitting. If set to "bandwidthCV" bandwidth
#' is automatically selected through \code{\link{bandwidthCV}}
#' @param bandwidths passed to \code{\link{bandwidthCV}} if locfit.h="bandwidthCV"
#' @param nFold passed to \code{\link{bandwidthCV}} if locfit.h="bandwidthCV"
#' @param nWell passed to \code{\link{bandwidthCV}} if locfit.h="bandwidthCV"
#' @param cutoff passed to \code{\link{bandwidthCV}} if locfit.h="bandwidthCV"
#' @param ... Parameter is passed to \code{\link{fitCellGrowth}}
#' @export
#' @return dataframe with entries
#' \item{maxGrowthRate}{maximal growth rate}
#' \item{pointOfMaxGrowthRate}{datapoint where growth rate is maximal}
#' \item{max}{inferred maximum among the time points}
#' \item{pointOfMax}{datapoint of the max fitted value}
