The Batch Mode serves for the sequential processing of multiple data sets. It can be used for fitting with a range of models, Monte Carlo simulations and to aggregate the parameters from existing KM files.
Batch processing is started from the Kinetic menu and opens a dialog window for setting up the batch queue as illustrated below. There are two batch types:
1.Batch based on Macros to sequentially fit models to the data.
Two types of data files can be processed:
Use the Add data button for opening a data selection window and select the data sets to be processed from a database or the file system. Further data can incrementally be added, and selected list entries removed.
Starting the Batch
The Run button starts processing, and PMOD will be blocked until processing completes.
The New file and the Append to file buttons can be used to specify a .kinPar file as a container for saving the result parameters of the batch run. These results can be transferred to the R console for performing statistics.
For allowing visual inspection of the results each original data file is replaced by new file. It contains in the history all model fits from the batch (as illustrated below), so that a user can simply load the file and step through the fits using the history buttons.
