Summary

This data set was collected to provide examples and aid in developing a standardized way of determining LOD and LOQ for eDNA assays and has 3 data files. GEDWG_LOD_DATA3.csv is raw qPCR data from multiple labs running multiple standards of known concentration for eDNA assays they regularly use. Comparison-Data.csv is the merged data output from running a generic LOD/LOQ calculator script multiple times with different LOD model settings. The generic LOD/LOQ calculator script is available at: https://github.com/cmerkes/qPCR_LOD_Calc, and details about the multiple settings used are commented in the analysis script available at: https://github.com/cmerkes/LOD_Analysis
