I have a data set classifiable by gender (male and female) and genetic status (WT and mutant). The WT data is mostly consistent with tight standard deviations, whereas the mutant data is highly inconsistent with variable standard deviations. The n is equal for both sets. I am interested in the following - 1) running a statistical test of the standard deviations showing that the mutants are inconsistent with high variability (Levene's test?) 2) running an ANOVA (or ANOVA like) test for the parameters to see if the mutant and WT means are significantly different. How should I go about this?
Any help will be highly appreciated.
