high-resolution terminology - matching measurements at high-resolution



A number of replica, N, of experiments on one sample type is designed to obtain statistical information about the involved population(s) and to test hypotheses about a population and about differences between populations, when experiments are carried out on different sample types. An experiment may involve various assays, e.g., a respirometric assay and an assay for protein determination.

The term 'experiment' is used with different meanings in common language.
  • See the entry on replica for a specific terminology on 'experiment'.
  • When 'designing an experiment', the term is used very close to the meaning of study design. A distinction made between experiment and study may be useful.
  • When 'running an experiment', the term is probably used as in the present description.
