Correlation Using the R Statistical Package - Part 3: R Functions and Scripts
Date of this Version
Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary (PASSeL) Lesson
In this lesson module we will calculate the correlation coefficient between one of the Canopy Spectral Reflectance (CSR) indices with yield and/or yield components under water stressed and non-stressed treatments in 300 winter wheat lines. As we analyze one aspect of the recorded data we will demonstrate the concepts of R programming and computational thinking to accomplish this goal.
After completing this lesson, you will be able to:
1. Prepare experimental data for analysis using the R functions.
2. Using R and actual data, calculate correlation coefficient values.
3. Demonstrate how to use Computational Thinking for problem-solving in a typical domain scenario in a plant breeding experiment.
