Four faculty members from College of Veterinary Science and Medicine attended a two-day training on Experimental Design and Data Management in Agricultural Research using STAR last July 25 – 26 at RET Building.
Statistical Tool for Agricultural Research (STAR) is statistical program developed by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and is primarily used for analysing agricultural data. The training was conducted to introduce STAR as a software for agricultural data analysis and to enhance the capacity of CLSU faculty and staff in data management and experimental designs.
The training was participated in by faculty researchers from College of Agriculture, College of Fisheries, College of Engineering and College of Veterinary Science and Medicine. Among them were Dr. Noraine Medina, Dr. Errol Jay Balagan, Dr. Nest Dale Bartolome and Dr Zeth Allen Santiago of CVSM. The participants were able to practice hands-on training on the use of STAR software using actual agricultural data.
The activity was spearheaded by the Socio-Economic Research Data Analytics Center (SERDAC) under the leadership of Dr. Maria Excelsis Order, SERDAC Program leader, in collaboration with the University Gender and Development Office (UGADO). – Errol Jay Y. Balagan
