Laura Terada Week 3 Journal

Laura Terada


  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.
