Maximizing Reproducibility

Ensuring your experimental design and your plans for analysis are sound before you undertake the research is crucial. Mistakes in experimental design, or in your plans for statistical analyses, can render results entirely meaningless. To avoid such costly mistakes, and also to promote transparency, scientists often submit their experimental design and analysis plan for independent review by peers, and once the design is finalized (often after several rounds of revision), they "register" it so that there exists a formal record of the original design for others to view.

For this project you will submit your initial experimental design and plans for analysis for feedback.
