I have run a couple of Western blots and I am planning on doing more in the future. My goal is to combine the results from the different Western blots and perform a statistical analysis in order to determine whether there are any statistically significant differences in the level of my protein of interest between my experimental groups.

However, I am new to statistical analysis for Western blots, so I was wondering if there are any good books out there about statistics for biology that talk about Western blot data and the statistical tests that one can use to analyse them?

Any insights are appreciated.

    $\begingroup$ I hardly believe if there are any books discussing western blot data analysis precisely. But the area you seek to learn can be addressed by "Student's t-test" and "P-value" in many statistic books. I've been planning to read "Optimal Design of Experiments A Case Study Approach" by Peter Goos, Bradley Jones or "Biostatistics for the Biological and Health Sciences" by Marc M. Triola, Mario F. Triola, Jason Roy or "Fundamentals of Biostatistics" by Bernard Rosner. $\endgroup$ – Sam Apr 9 at 13:54
