The statistical analyses of populations of first-generation transgenic plants are commonly based on mean and variance and generally require a test of normality. Since in many cases the assumptions of normality are not met, analyses can result in erroneous conclusions. Transformation of data to normality, the use of other distributions, or distribution-free statistical tests should then be used to obtain valid conclusions from these populations.
