The careful design of experiments lies at the core of good research. Experimental Design for the Life Sciences equips you with the skills you need to effectively design experiments, making this essential aspect of the research process readily understandable. It demonstrates how good experimental design relies on clear thinking and biological understanding, not mathematical or statistical complexity.
With a refreshingly approachable and articulate style, Experimental Design for the Life Sciences walks you through the considerations that go into designing an experiment in clear, practical terms. Using examples drawn from across the life sciences – from ecology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and health sciences – the authors illustrate how these concepts are applied within the broad context of real biological research.
New to this edition
