Established biotechnology company seeks a programmer to write a script to fit batches of logistic growth curves (and output an estimated malthusian parameter [r] and carrying capacity parameter [K]). Input data points are microbial growth data from a bioreactor (OD measurement) over a time-course. Script should provide a graphical display of the fitted curves. Preferrably a simple GUI interface will be developed.
We envision the computational backbone will be in R. However, any language/approach would be acceptible.
Upon successful collaboration on this project, other projects will be available for additional discrete "data-cruncher" utilities (Perl and R preferred, but other languages also OK).
