Biom 802: Experimental Design
Both as a consumer and a producer of science it is important to understand the process of conducting research. In this course we will examine the process from the "question stage" to the "report stage" and back again. Along the lines we will examine the statistical tools we have for formulating models, efficiently collecting data, analyzing and interpreting data. By the end the course it is hoped that you will have developed the skills needed to design and analyze simple experiments. It is also important that you understand the underlying concepts. It is the underlying concepts which will allow you to handle situations not specifically covered in the course.
