Experiment lifecycle

Post by Tala » Fri Feb 04, 2011 1:24 pm

Can anyone tell me about a biological experiment lifecycle?
I mean step by step - what is done, what is written (where do you take all the encodings such as CellLine is MCF7<--just an example). What tools are used to document the steps and results?
Do you use just Notepad or Word and Excel? :?:

p.s. if you wish you can describe your specific experiments as examples.

first you need some hypothesis or something to investigate. Then you plan your experiment, you perform your experiment and based on your results you either accept or reject (mostly:) your theory.

The software used depends solely on you. And of course on what you need. If you need to put your results into some table, you will probably use Excel ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Well..could you be more specific?
So what is experiment planning? how plan looks and where it is written?typed?
performing experiment is done step by step. I guess plan is used for step ordering. but what isdone during these steps? (some examples) and how data (input,output) is stored (tool?)
