Sample Statistics Questions

  • How did you decide on the number of experiments? (power analysis)
  • How do you know if your results are statistically significant? (ANOVA, t-tests, p-value, etc)
  • Can you look for effects of your treatment that you did not initially design your experiment for? For instance, what if you notice in your data that it seems like while your subjects given drug A do not have lowered blood pressure, they do have lowered blood cholesterol? (multiple comparisons, Bonferroni correction, etc)
