Replicate Gompertz Logistic P
1 -385.5 -369.9 < 0.001
2 -380.1 -380.1 0.88

  1. For the three separate replicates and the average dataset, the log-likelihood for the data under the Gompertz and Logistic model are presented. In the last column, the P values of the likelihood ratio tests are presented. The highly significant values in replicate 1, 3 and the average demonstrate that these datasets are best described by the logistic model. The non-significant value in replicate 2 demonstrates that this dataset is best described by the Gompertz model.
