Elisa assay of DNase

Share:

Description

The 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.

Usage

1

Format

An object of class c("nfnGroupedData", "nfGroupedData", "groupedData", "data.frame") containing the following columns:

Run

an ordered factor with levels 10 < ... < 3 indicating the assay run.

conc

a numeric vector giving the known concentration of the protein.

density

a numeric vector giving the measured optical density (dimensionless) in the assay. Duplicate optical density measurements were obtained.

Details

This dataset was originally part of package nlme, and that has methods (including for [, as.data.frame, plot and print) for its grouped-data classes.
