Chick Bone Data

Description

Balanced incomplete block design on the effect of amino acids on growth of chick bones.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 30 observations on the following 3 variables.

Treat

Treatment with levels All (all amino acids present), Arg-(all acids present except Arg), etc.

Pair

bones were taken in pairs from 15 chicks

y

Log10 dry weight of bones at end of experiment

Details

Bones from 7-day-old chick embryos were cultivated over a nutrient chemical medium. Two bones were available from each chick, and the experiment was set out in a balanced incomplete block design with two units per block. The treatments were growth in the complete medium, with about 30 nutrients in carefully controlled quantities, and growth in five other media, each with a single amino acid omitted. Thus His-, Arg-, and so forth denote media without particular amino acids.
