Project motivation / Research Questions

Bananas (Musca spp.) are a fruit consumed worldwide and the fourth most important food crop (after rice, wheat and maize) in the world (Prabha & Kumar 2015). Humans has been cultivating bananas for at least 8000 years (and possibly over 10,000 years)! Bananas are grown in over 150 countries each year with over 100 million metric tonnes of fruit being produced ear year. The most commonly internationally exported type of banana are those from the “Cavendish” cultivars belong to the AAA genome group, which includes the cultivars that have three sets of chromosome inherited from the wild (ancestral) species Musa acuminate. The bananas develop from flowers that grow on stems of this large, herbaceous (non-woody) plant. Bananas make up ~9% of the >6.5 billion dollars of fresh fruit imported in to Canada,(Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, 2017), with ~ 15.70 kg of bananas consumed on average by each Canadian annually. Given their ubiquitous nature, bananas provide a great opportunity for us as biologists/statisticians to explore a number of different questions that are of great relevance from both biological and economic perspectives.

In this assignment, you will be trying to answer two questions:

1) Are there differences in the size* of the banana “fingers” that are found on the inside and outside row of bananas on each “hand” of bananas?

2) Do the characteristics* of a bunch of bananas being bough differ where they are bought locally or elsewhere?

* What do I mean by “size” and “characteristics”? The answers will depend on you (see below)

 

How Will I Do this Assignment?

You should begin by visiting the course MyLS page to retrieve your personalized/individualized dataset (in csv format). The data therein contains a subset of the complete data collected by you and your classmates. The subset was created by me (using R of course) using a simple random sampling technique to create a unique dataset for your personal use (i.e. everyone will have a slightly different set of data). To further

 

individualize each of your assignments, the variables (“size” and “characteristics” you will be analyzing will depend on when you were born & your student ID). Please consult the table below to determine which response variables you will be using.
