## Lab 2: “Adding to the Toolbox: Using Statistics”

Since you did such a great job designing the experiment last week, Kristen leaves the data analysis up to you guys! She ran two experiments. The first experiment was completed in rats and Kristen thinks the LPS treatment increased Inflammotin protein levels as anticipated. She did a second experiment in elderly people at her grandmother’s retirement center. Over the weekend, she ran an ELISA to measure Inflammotin protein levels in both experiments (blood samples). (The Excel sheet containing the data is available on Blackboard.)

Assignment:
1. Calculate the descriptive statistics for both data sets.
2. Analyze the data to determine whether there was any effect of LPS on inflammation in rats or people.
