Anova (version 1.2.1)
Matrix of numeric data with headers.
Tabular file with the data metadata : one sample per line and at least two columns : ids and one condition
Tabular file with information about your tested variables. Only used to aggregate generated information.
Perform the anova tests on column/row; for W4M 3-tables format, use 'row'.
The column name of the condition. ex: hour or treatment
Conditions for N-ways anovas
Conditions for N-ways anova 0
Used if more than 1 conditon. The anova will produse p-value according to the interaction between your condition (ex: condition1:conditions2, condition1:conditions3, condition2:conditions3 and condition1:condition2:conditions3)
Method used to apply a correction on the pvalue because of the number of test
max adjusted p.value accepted
Intersection: all condition p-value must be under the threshold. Union: at least condition p-value must be under the threshold.

Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to analyze the differences between group means and their associated procedures, in which the observed variance in a particular variable is partitioned into components attributable to different sources of variation.

Note about sum of squares (SS) calculation of N-way ANOVA in this module. This module use R function manova() (and thus R function aov()) to establish N-way ANOVA. Therefore calculated sum of squares are sequential ones (sometimes called "Type I SS"). If your design is unbalanced, this may not correspond to the type of hypothesis being of interest. Note that you can obtain adjusted sums of squares ("Type II SS") by running several times this module with different orders in factors.
