Modern Experimental Designs: Construction and Analysis

Emlyn Williams
CSIRO Forestry and Forest Products, Canberra, Australia

This lecture will cover the design and analysis of a number of design types used in practice for field, glasshouse, micro array and clinical trials ranging from simple randomized complete block, factorial and split-plot designs through to different forms of incomplete block, row-column, spatial and crossover designs. The design generation packages CycDesigN and CrossOver will be discussed.
Analyses of design types will be presented using examples and will involve analysis of variance and mixed-model analysis. Testing and interpretation of results will be discussed. The book “Experimental Design and Analysis for Tree Improvement” by E.R. Williams, A.C. Matheson and C.E. Harwood provides some background material for the early part of the lecture.
