Experimental Design

Plant Breeding and Genomics October 10, 2013 Print Friendly and PDF
These tutorials provide an introduction to experimental design including different layouts and considerations for statistical inference.

Experimental design is the process of choosing treatments, responses, and controls, defining experimental and sample units, and determining the physical arrangement, or layout, of experiment units. Experiments should be designed to control error and give reasonable assurance that the differences between treatments will be detected. Time and resources always limit experimental design, and in some instances there are ethical and legal constraints as well.
