Description Usage Format References Examples

Description

Expression of reporter genes CFP and YFP in over 200 E. coli cells of two strains: D22 and M22. These values are displayed in a scatterplot in Elowitz et al (2002) Fig 3a.

Usage

1
data("elowitz_data")

Format

The format is: List of 2 $ D22:'data.frame': 284 obs. of 2 variables: ..$ CFP: num [1:284] 3080 3082 2893 3053 2891 ... ..$ YFP: num [1:284] 2309 2394 2145 2340 2245 ... $ M22:'data.frame': 250 obs. of 2 variables: ..$ CFP: num [1:250] 2438 2316 2521 2646 2830 ... ..$ YFP: num [1:250] 1409 1391 1511 1460 1638 ...
