Work-plan 2017: Biometrics and Statistics Section
Murari Singh, Khaled El-Shamaa. (1/1/2017). Work-plan 2017: Biometrics and Statistics Section. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
Biometrics and Statistics support will be made available in the design of experiments, data analysis and inference, and statistical review of scientific manuscripts. Support will also be given in statistical computing and other software of interest to the researchers. Through involvement in the CRPs and Generation Challenge Program, we shall have strong involvement in research and spatial database management including ICIS, long-term trials and Bioinformatics work which will focus on data management, identification of crop varieties for spatial adaptation and temporalstability, estimation of yield-trends in long-term trials, and analysis of molecular marker data, expression data and spatial modeling. It is expected that BSS will be involved in providing Research Methods supports to CRPs and bilateral projects by organizing training courses on experimental designs and statistical data analysis, and providing technical backstopping to NARS scientists at various Action and Satellite sites.
