[R] How to test a difference in ratios of count data in R

Hello R-experts,
I am interested to determine if the ratio of counts from two groups differ across two distinct treatments. For example, we have three replicates of treatment A, and three replicates of treatment B. For each treatment, we have counts X from one group and counts Y from another group. My understanding is that that GLIMMIX procedure in SAS can calculate whether the ratio of counts in one group (X/X+Y) significantly differs between treatments.
I think this is the way you do it in SAS. The replicate and treatment variables are self-explanatory. The first number (n) refers to the total counts X + Y; the second number (X) refers to the counts X. Is there a way to do this in R? Since we have 20,000 datasets to be tested, it may be easier to retrive the significant test as the given dataset below and its p>F value and mean ratios of treatments in R than SAS.
data test;
input replicate treatment$ n X;
datalines;
1 A 32 4
1 B 33 18
2 A 20 6
2 B 21 18
3 A 7 0
3 B 8 4
;
proc glimmix data=test;
class replicate treatment;
model X/n = treatment / solution;
random intercept / subject=replicate;
run;
ods select lsmeans;
proc glimmix data=test;
class replicate treatment;
model X/n = treatment / solution;
random intercept / subject=replicate;
lsmeans treatment / cl ilink;
run;
I appreciate your help in advance!
