margolin: Margolin et al. (1981) present data from an Ames Salmonella assay, where y is the number of revertant colonies observed on a plate given a dose y of quinoline. The data were subsequently analysed by Breslow (1984), Lawless (1987) and Saha and Paul (2005).
Data frames each with the following variable.
a numeric vector showing the number of revertant colonies observed on a plate given a dose x of quinoline.
a numeric vector showing a a dose x of quinoline.
