    comparing two dose(inhibition) respose curves log vs log log

    I'm not a stats person, so I need some help. I am looking for a statistics model to compare one dose(inhibition) response curve to the log space of that same curve. The trick is, in order to analyze the data, we have to take the observed concentrations and RFU's and log transform them. We...
