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
