Swirl: Learn R, in R
Analyzing Nutrient Simulation Experiments with a one-way ANOVA
09 Jun 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):
By Rebecca North
We discuss what tests are appropriate to analyze the data from nutrient simulation experiments. They will conduct one-way ANOVAs and a post hoc test using a dummy dataset and interpret the results.

Should we synthesize a human genome?
Two articles introducing the Human Genome Project-Write and asking questions about the ethics of the project.
Ethics of Metabolic engineering
This is an ethical reflection for students on an issue in metabolic engineering and the potential for "home-brew" morphine. The case study asks students to reflect on material in the linked...
Ethics in synthetic genomics
This is an ethical reflection for students on an issue in genome engineering and the synthesis of potentially infectious viruses. The case study asks students to reflect on material in the linked...
Ethics of Gene Editing
This is an ethical reflection for students on an issue in gene editing. The case study asks students to reflect on material in the two linked articles. Also included is the grading rubric.
