This book discusses special modifications and extensions of designs that arise in certain fields of application such as genetics, bioinformatics, agriculture, medicine, manufacturing, marketing, etc. Well-known and highly-regarded contributors have written individual chapters that have been extensively reviewed by the Editor to ensure that each individual contribution relates to material found in Volumes 1 and 2 of this book series. The chapters in Volume 3 have an introductory/historical component and proceed to a more advanced technical level to discuss the latest results and future developments in the field. Thus, Volume 3 serves as supplement to both Volume 1 and Volume 2 and is also accessible not only to statistics graduate students and researchers in experimental design, but also to experimental/industrial investigators familiar with the basic ideas of experimental design. Where appropriate, numerical examples are included, using statistical software, such as SAS, JMP, and R, for the analysis. Topical coverage includes: Genetic cross experiments, microarray experiments, agricultural field trials, designing and monitoring clinical trials, adaptive randomization, search designs, fractional factorial designs, choice experiments, computer experiments, robust parameter designs, industrial split-plot type designs, designs for generalized linear models, analysis of directional data.
