Using EDA, ANOVA and Regression to Optimise some Microbiology Data

Using EDA, ANOVA and Regression to Optimise some Microbiology Data

Created by Neil S. Binnie of the Auckland University of Technology, this article describes a dataset containing information on bacterium culturing. Students can use graphical methods, one-way and two-way ANOVA, and multiple polynomial regression to estimate the optimal conditions for bacteria growth. The author breaks the site down in this way: an introduction, data source, description of data, pedagogical uses and references. The specific topics covered include: analysis of variance, exploratory data analysis, interactions, optimization, and outliers.
