Experimental Design Assistant

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The Experimental Design Assistant (EDA) (https://eda.nc3rs.org.uk) is a free web-based tool that was developed by the NC3Rs (https://www.nc3rs.org.uk). It guides researchers through the design and analysis of in vivo experiments. The EDA allows users to build a stepwise visual representation of their experiment, providing feedback and dedicated support for randomization, blinding and sample size calculation. This demonstration will provide an introduction to the tool and provide guidance on getting started. Ultimately, the use of a tool such as the EDA will lead to carefully designed experiments that yield robust and reproducible data using the minimum number of animals consistent with scientific objectives.
