On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the cav data set which pertains to Position of Muscle Caveolae. The cav data set is found in the boot R package. You can load the cav data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("cav"). This will load the data into a variable called cav. If R says the cav data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("boot") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the cav R data set. The size of this file is about 1,056 bytes.
Position of Muscle Caveolae
cav data frame has 138 rows and 2 columns.
The data gives the positions of the individual caveolae in a square region with sides of length 500 units. This grid was originally on a 2.65mum square of muscle fibre. The data are those points falling in the lower left hand quarter of the region used for the dataset
caveolae.dat in the spatial package by B.D. Ripley (1994).
This data frame contains the following columns:
The x coordinate of the caveola's position in the region.
The y coordinate of the caveola's position in the region.
