Guide to Essential Biostatistics XIII: Inferential Statistics - Two Sample Means Comparison: the t-Test (Part I)

In this thirteenth article in the LabCoat Guide to BioStatistics series, intended as a basic refresher for scientists and technicians, we introduce the t-test. For biological experiments, the objective of most trials is to determine whether the means of the measured variables are equal (the null hypothesis) or whether they are significantly different. The t-tests are a group of inferential parametric methods used to determine if two samples (or a sample and a theoretical mean) have the same mean (null hypothesis), or if there is a significant difference between the means. #statistics #biostatistics #experimentalresearch #cropprotection #bioscience #GuideToEssentialBiostatistics #Experimentaldesign
