Lesson 3: Designing BioInformatics Experiments
|Key Learning Goals for this Lesson:|
Overview of Experiment Design
The objective of good experimental design is to obtain accurate and replicable findings at reasonable allocation of resources. While many details will be specific to the objective at hand, in this chapter we will review some of the general principles of good design.
We will also review two different objectives of bioinformatics experiments - technical experiments which seek to determine whether experimental protocols are accurate, and biological experiments which seek to further biological knowledge.
