Laura Terada Week 3 Journal
- What aspect of this assignment came most easily to you?
- Doing the basic excel functions came the easiest to me (ex: average, stdev).
- 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.
- What (yet) do you not understand?
- Nothing- the assignment was pretty straightforward!
- 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.

- None of it came easily for me.
- Using excel is hard for me and was very time consuming with the tediousness of this assignment,.
- I need to review the statistics material, I had stats last semester but have apparently not retained much of what I learned.
- 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.
