In this lesson module we will calculate the correlation coefficient between one of the Canopy Spectral Reflectance (CSR) indices with yield and/or yield components under water stressed and non-stressed treatments in 300 winter wheat lines. As we analyze one aspect of the recorded data we will demonstrate the concepts of R programming and computational thinking to accomplish this goal.  


After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

1.  Prepare experimental data for analysis using the R functions.

2.  Using R and actual data, calculate correlation coefficient values.

3.  Demonstrate how to use Computational Thinking for problem-solving in a typical domain scenario in a plant breeding experiment.Title
