Standard Deviation Tutorial

Standard deviation is one of the most common statistical calculations used in the lab. Unfortunately, molecular biologists tend not to be the strongest statisticians. On the other hand, molecular biologists are very proud folks who might have trouble admitting their mathematical deficiencies. I hope that my fellow molecular biologists don’t find this statement too offensive. Perhaps it isn’t true? Maybe it’s just me?

Just in case, below we have included a video that provides a comprehensive yet simple to understand explanation of how to calculate the standard deviation. Please let us know if you find it useful. Anonymous comments will be accepted!
