DNase data frame has 176 rows and 3 columns of data
obtained during development of an ELISA assay for the recombinant
protein DNase in rat serum.
An object of class
c("nfnGroupedData", "nfGroupedData", "groupedData", "data.frame")
containing the following columns:
an ordered factor with levels
10 < ... <
indicating the assay run.
a numeric vector giving the known concentration of the protein.
a numeric vector giving the measured optical density (dimensionless) in the assay. Duplicate optical density measurements were obtained.
This dataset was originally part of package
nlme, and that has
