# Is this a two way ANOVA with replicates?

I have the following results from a biological experiment. I measure the size of the sample (2,4,8,16,32 or 64) and count its distribution in a population of 50 (sum of counts=50). I do those measurements in the wildtype (wt) and the experimental sample (KO) in three independent experiments (replicate 1,2,3).

Am I in a setup for a two way ANOVA with replicates? How can I proceed rigorously, with the maximum power in R as I am not sure (1) my data is normally distributed and (2) how to code that in R anyway?

Thanks!

I think your treatments are wt and KO and there are two responses that you observe for each replicate -- size and count. BTW, I am assuming by replicate you mean biological replicate. If I am right, it is just ANOVA with 1 treatment, but I don't understand the reason for 3 experiments. –  suncoolsu Sep 1 '11 at 18:36
Yes, I have 3 biological replicates (replicates 1,2 and 3) to test for reproducibility. Hope that makes more sense. Thanks! –  Olivier Sep 2 '11 at 14:32
So, you just have two treatments then wt and KO and you are taking two observations on it, size and count. Right? If yes, I will post the answer. –  suncoolsu Sep 3 '11 at 0:33
