## Exact binomial tests

### Description

Assess symmetry of parasitic infections by performing exact binomial tests on pooled data and individual hosts.

### Usage

```
eb.test(x)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
a matrix or data frame with two numeric columns; first column is for left-side and 2nd column for right-side. Identifiers for hosts can be provided as row names. |

### Details

This function performs a binomial exact tests with the null hypothesis of a 1:1 ratio. It takes as its argument a matrix or data frame with two numeric columns; first column is for left-side and 2nd column for right-side. Identifiers for hosts can be provided as row names. Uninfected hosts (zero count for both left and right sides) are ignored.

### Value

It returns a list containing two elements:

`pooled` |
p-value for pooled binomial exact test (null hypothesis: the ratio of the total number of parasites from each side doesn't differ from 1:1). |

`hosts` |
data.frame of results of binomial exact tests performed on the distribution of parasites in each host. |

### Examples

```
eb.test(diplostomum_lenses)
```
