Guide to Essential BioStatistics V: Designing and implementing experiments - Variance.

In this fifth article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we learn about Variance in designing and implementing experiments. Variance determines the required sample size (number of treatments or number of replicates) when designing an experiment. Variance may be estimated from pilot trials or similar, prior experiments. A useful trick to have up your sleeve is the ability to give a rough estimate of the standard deviation of a data set using the Range Rule of Thumb. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign

Guide to Essential BioStatistics IV: Statistical Significance, Power and Effect Size.

In this fourth article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we learn about Statistical Significance, Power and Effect Size. The 5% significance level (a threshold arbitrarily decided on by biologists) ensures we are 95% confident that we will not make a Type-I error (identifying false positives). The power or sensitivity of a test is used to determine the appropriate sample size for a test or experiment. For crop protection researchers, effect size (or treatment effect) is often defined as the minimum improvement in efficacy needed to justify the costs of developing a new pesticide formulation. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign

GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL BIOSTATISTICS: AGCHEM & BIOSCIENCE (THE LABCOAT GUIDE TO CROP PROTECTION Book 3)

GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL BIOSTATISTICS is an easily accessible primer for scientists and research workers not trained in mathematical theory, and provides a readily accessible overview on how to plan, implement and analyze experiments without access to a dedicated staff of statisticians. #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Cropprotection #Experimentaldesign #Biostatistics #statistics

Guide to Essential BioStatistics III: Type I and Type II errors

In this third article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we learn about Type I and Type II errors. A Type-I error would lead us to reject the Null hypothesis, claiming that there IS a difference between treatments (false positive) when there is none. A Type-II error would lead us to not reject the Null hypothesis, erroneously concluding that there is NOT a difference in phytotoxicity between the treatments. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign

Agrochemical Formulations - Active Ingredient Uptake and Translocation

Are you starting a new #cropprotection project, moving teams, or starting a new role - AgroTraining Group provides specialized online #training courses that will help you focus on specific topics and get you up to speed fast. I have developed this course on the #agrobiology of #agrochemical #formulations to provide an insight into plant physiology and anatomy as barriers to active ingredient uptake and translocation, as well as active ingredient physical-chemical properties determining their uptake and translocation. By understanding the factors determining active ingredient uptake and translocation, the application and bioavailability of crop protection formulations can be optimized, enhancing efficacy, providing product differentiation and addressing environmental and regulatory challenges. This course is fully online and available on-demand - when and as you are ready to take it.

Guide to Essential BioStatistics II: Proposing a Hypothesis (the Null Hypothesis)

In this second article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we learn how to propose a hypothesis. A hypothesis is the basic tenet of the scientific method. It is often described as an “educated guess” to account for an observed phenomenon or for a research idea, and is based on prior knowledge and observation. A Research or Working Hypothesis is a proposal or prediction to be proved or disproved through experimentation or observation. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign

Guide to Essential BioStatistics I: The Scientific Method

In this first article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we cover essential principles of the Scientific Method. The Scientific Method is the mainstay of R&D and provides an objective and systematic approach to experimentation, by minimizing the influence of experimenter bias or prejudice in the form of preconceived notions. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign
