Averaging Plot Data in R

In agronomy research, its very common to collect 10 plants from a single plot, take measurements on them, and average those measurements. The plot average is the value we run statistics on, whether that means building a regression or running an ANOVA. I've recently seen a lot of my fellow grad students averaging measurements by… Continue reading Averaging Plot Data in R

Random Forest

Machine learning algorithms are cool because the can handle continuous and categorical variables and have few assumptions about data distribution. As the name machine learning would imply, it's a highly automated process. Sometimes they take a while to compute, but the computer can be unsupervised during that time. One machine learning algorithm I use in… Continue reading Random Forest
