Product description

From the Back Cover

Statistical Analysis in Microbiology: StatNotes has been designed specifically for microbiologists who are involved in experimental research and need to draw accurate conclusions from their findings. It features twenty–eight StatNotes that together enable you to understand the basic principles of statistics, choose the correct statistical methods to analyze your experimental data, and work with a variety of commercially available statistical software packages. These StatNotes are based on a series of popular articles published in Microbiologist, the official magazine of the Society for Applied Microbiology. They explore a variety of topics in statistics that are essential for analyzing experimental data, including:

  • Nature of variables

  • Comparison of means of two or more groups

  • Non–parametric statistics

  • Analysis of variance

  • Correlation of variables

  • Multiple linear regression and factor analysis

Throughout the book, the logic and mechanics of each statistical test presented are carefully explained. Moreover, each statistical test is illustrated with examples drawn from actual experiments and research data in microbiology. As a result, you can clearly see how each test is interpreted and what types of conclusions can be drawn from the research data.

In the back of the book, you′ll find a glossary of statistical terms and their abbreviations as well as a summary of sample size calculations. You′ll also find two appendices that help you select the most appropriate statistical tests based on the type of research you′re conducting and the type of data that you′re gathering.

Given the wide variety of statistical software packages, it′s essential that you understand the underlying principles and purpose of each statistical method; applying an inappropriate statistical test can easily lead to the wrong conclusions. Written specifically for microbiologists, the highly acclaimed and popular StatNotes enable you to choose which statistical methods should be applied to analyze and draw correct conclusions from your experimental data.

Format: Paperback
The great thing about this book is it's ease of reading. The logic behind statistical methods are explained, unlike many other books. In many areas of medicine, optometry and dentistry it is important to explain the reasons behind the choice of statistical methods when carrying out research. This book explains simply and concisely which methods are used and why. Scenarios are given in order to give context to the statistics, allowing the reader to understand the analyses better. Reasons for different post hoc tests are given and parametric vs non-parametric methods are discussed. A great read.
