```Hi

your fit is an object (list) and you could use some functions like
summary or coef to extract usefull information from it or you can
call its components on your own.

DNase1)

Formula: density ~ SSlogis(log(conc), Asym, xmid, scal)

Parameters:
Estimate Std. Error t value Pr(>|t|)
Asym  2.34518    0.07815   30.01 2.17e-13 ***
xmid  1.48309    0.08135   18.23 1.22e-10 ***
scal  1.04146    0.03227   32.27 8.51e-14 ***
---
Signif. codes:  0 '***' 0.001 '**' 0.01 '*' 0.05 '.' 0.1 ' ' 1

Residual standard error: 0.01919 on 13 degrees of freedom

2.345180 1.483090 1.041455
> coef(fm1DNase1)[1]
Asym
2.34518
