kinwrite.KinGUI: Function to write KinGUI input files from kinetic data


This function takes an R object as used by the kinfit package and tries to write a text file which is compatible with the KinGUI software tool.





A list containing the following elements: The name of the parent compound to be output (parent), the type of the test system (type), the name of the specific test system used for generating this dataset (system), a data frame containing the raw data (data), which should be in the same form as required by by kinfit.


The filename, potentially including the full path, specifying where the output whould be written.


An optional comment that will be integrated in the header of the KinGUI input file.


The function is called for its side effect, namely the generation of a text file.


The KinGUI software tool was announced to be freely available on CD from the main author of the paper cited above, Dieter Schäfer <>.
