LAB 2 WRITE-UP
In this experiment, we started out by using an ANOVA test on the human data because there was more than 2 groups to compare. The ANOVA gave us the initial statistics but we also had to complete the Bonferroni Correction to compare the different groups to each other. We completed a t-test for each comparison and adjusted the p-value for statistical significance. We found that there is significance in the human study because the p-value was below the found p-value for significance (0.00833). Therefore, this shows that there is a significant difference between the levels of Inflammotin protein. For the experiment that dealt with the rat study, we used a simple t-test to figure out the p-value because it just dealt with two groups (0mg vs. 10mg). After analyzing the data for the rat study, we found that there was no significance based off the found p-value (0.05). Therefore, this shows that there is no significant difference between the levels of the Inflammotin protein. The human study showed a significant difference in the production of the Inflammotin protein correlating to the LPS dosage. However, the rat study showed that there was no significant difference in the production of the Inflammotin protein between the 0 mg and 10 mg dosage of LPS.
