growthcurver: Simple Metrics to Summarize Growth Curves

This is a simple package that fits the logistic equation to microbial growth curve data (e.g., repeated absorbance measurements taken from a plate reader over time). From this fit, a variety of metrics are provided, including the maximum growth rate, the doubling time, the carrying capacity, the area under the logistic curve, and the time to the inflection point.
