Table 2 Required video duration and number of replicates for identifying a significant effect

From: High-throughput phenotyping of plant resistance to aphids by automated video tracking

Plant-aphid system Duration Replicates Detection rate
Arabidopsis - M. persicae 8 h 20 > 80%
6 h 25 > 80%
Lettuce – N. ribisnigri 8 h 20 > 80%
4 h 15 > 80%
  1. Student’s t-tests have been applied to subsamples of two simulated data sets with a similar mean and standard deviation as two response variables from the video tracking assays. The percentage of tests with a significant outcome in at least one of the two variables is represented as the detection rate (Bonferroni correction: P < 0.025).
