Why would you learn Experimental design?
- Understanding the design of an experiment is crucial to analysing it and the data you gather.
- You regularly run small experiments and would like to understand the best way to set them up.
- The design influences the number of samples you will need to take.
Why should you do this course?
- SAGI-STH has developed the Biometry Education Initiative to tailor to the needs of researchers in the Australian Grains Industry.
- The course is run by grains industry researchers, for grains industry researchers. Researchers in other agricultural industries are also more than welcome to attend!
- The course is non-threatening, with plenty of examples and hands-on practice to help you get familiar with the material.
What will you get out of it?
- You will become familiar with the basics of experimental design
- Practice using R and some relevant packages for real world examples.
- You will learn how to estimate the number of samples you will require.
- A better understanding of why your experiment was done the way it was.
