Scientific research is the ultimate tool in pushing forward the limit of our understanding. But, as with any tool, research is only powerful if used properly, and to its full effect.
Research Methods in the Biosciences demystifies the process of research to equip every biosciences student with the skills they need to get the most out of their investigations. Research isn't solely about experimental design; the book leads them through all the factors that, together, enable effective research. These include planning your experiment; data collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting; and legal, ethical, and health & safety considerations.
Research Methods for the Biosciences brings together the knowledge and skills required of every good researcher as a coherent whole, making it the essential resource for any biosciences student.
