miLAG: Calculates Microbial Lag Duration (on the Population Level) from Provided Growth Curve Data

Microbial growth is often measured by growth curves i.e. a table of population sizes and times of measurements. This package allows to use such growth curve data to determine the duration of "microbial lag phase" i.e. the time needed for microbes to restart divisions. It implements the most commonly used methods to calculate the lag duration, these methods are discussed and described in Opalek 2022. Citation: "How to determine microbial lag phase duration?", M. Opalek, B. Smug, D. Wloch-Salamon (2022) <doi:10.1101/2022.11.16.516631>.
