Tips for Next-Gen Sequencing Experiment Design: Randomization

If one aspect of Next-Gen sequencing experiments is missing “big” attention, one can immediately point to “good design principles” for Next-Gen Sequencing experiments. Although, there is a lot of computational/statistical methods are coming up for analyzing Next-Gen Sequencing data, it looks like there are not that many resources for designing NGS experiments. At least it […]
