inferring two systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Experiments are sometimes conducted to show which of several compounds is successful at inactivating which of several microorganisms. This paper proposes a method of analysing the datasets obtained. The example refers to 33 compounds (2,4-dihydroxythiobenzanilides) and seven microorganisms (dermatophytes) [data from Eur. J. Med. Chem. 35 (2000) 393]. The conclusion is that two systems or modes of action are needed to explain the data.
