The importance of experimental design

An introduction to experimental design in metabolomics.

Experimental design is important in any scientific study. Ideally we would measure one source of variation while controlling all others. However, in metabolomics it is not always possible to control all sources of variation due to the complexity of the studies.

Professor Warwick Dunn introduces the importance of experimental design in metabolomics studies and explains how to perform your study so that you have confidence in the final results.
