Experimental design and power
Sound experimental design is essential to good science. Scientific review committees reviewing research proposals usually look for evidence of careful experimental design. They may also desire, and it may be in the researcher’s self-interest, that experiments be economical. Much of good experimental design is a mixture of common sense, pragmatism, and careful forethought, which are difficult to codify. Nonetheless, some general principles for experimental design can be laid out. In this chapter, we discuss issues special to QTL experiments with the help of the R package, R/qtlDesign.
