BIOL12105  Biological Experimentation

An understanding of experimental design, statistical methods, ethics and the ability to critically analyse scientific reports is essential for graduates in the biological sciences. This course covers experimental design, ethics and commonly used statistical procedures. Using a clear, conceptual approach which assumes little or no statistical background, the student is introduced to hypothesis testing and experimental design, parametric one, two and multi sample analyses (including one way, two way, nested and randomised block ANOVA designs), correlation, regression, transformations and non parametric analyses including contingency tables, correlation and multisample tests.
