Definitive Screening Designs

Definitive? Really? I’m going to be taking a close look at definitive screening designs and I’ll try and not get hung-up on the name: calling them DSDs should solve that problem!

DSDs represent a revolutionary approach to designing screening experiments.  I want to take a look at the motivation behind these designs and explore their characteristics in relation to traditional screening designs.  DSDs are  highly efficient in the use of resources required to conduct an experiment, but that efficiency can sometimes come at the price of more complexity when it comes to analysing the experiment data.  I want to take a look at the assumptions that underpin the designs and how those assumptions impact modelling of the experimental results.  (more…)
