  1. What aspect of this assignment came most easily to you?
    • Doing the basic excel functions came the easiest to me (ex: average, stdev).
  2. What aspect of this assignment was the most challenging for you?
    • The most challenging part was in the sanity check section where we had to use all the filters, since I have never used that feature before.
  3. What (yet) do you not understand?
    • Nothing- the assignment was pretty straightforward!
  4. Does "crunching" the data yourself help you to understand microarray experiments better? Why or why not?
    • It doesn't help me to understand the experiment better, but it also doesn't NOT help me. I understood microarray experiments before this assignment; however, I suppose this helps me in developing the skills needed to deal with raw data.

  1. None of it came easily for me.
  2. Using excel is hard for me and was very time consuming with the tediousness of this assignment,.
  3. I need to review the statistics material, I had stats last semester but have apparently not retained much of what I learned.
  4. No, I could have gained the same knowledghe I did during this assignment seeing a worksheet with everything already performed, doing this just took a lot of time.

  1. What aspect of this assignment came most easily to you?
    • Sorting all the data and filtering came the easiest to me.
  2. What aspect of this assignment was the most challenging for you?
    • The most challenging part of the assignment was keeping all the columns straight because there were so many. Making sure that I was using the correct column and row for each equation got a little confusing with all of the data.
  3. What (yet) do you not understand?
    • There is nothing that I did not understand, it was a very easy assignment to follow because it was laid out so well.
  4. Does "crunching" the data yourself help you to understand microarray experiments better? Why or why not?
    • Looking at and analyzing the data definitely helped me to understand it more. I was having a hard time trying to figure out how the data was normalized, so going through the process cleared that up. I am also a big number person, so this was a good assignment for me.
