Biostatistics Software for Analyzing Dilution Assays

Biostatistics Core Develops Software Tool for Analyzing Dilution Assays

UNC Center for AIDS Research Biostatistics Core graduate research assistant Ilana Trumble and former Core GRAs Andrew Allmon, Owen Francis, Pedro Baldoni, alumnus Dr. Joseph Rigdon, and Core Director, Prof. Michael Hudgens published a research paper in the November 2017 issue of the Journal of Immunological Methods, titled “SLDAssay: A software package and web tool for analyzing limiting dilution assays”.

In current HIV research, dilution assays are used to investigate strategies for eradicating the virus from latently infected cells in HIV positive individuals. This software package aids in the detection of the latent HIV reservoir by providing tools for analyzing data from dilution assays.

The R-package is found here .
