"Another aspect of this discussion that is rarely touched is the fact that simulation programs will always present "by the book" experiment and never confront the students with important experimental issues such as experimental errors and biological variation."   I disagree with this gloomy statement.  It is not outside the realm of today's technology to throw in random variables and obtain expected dimensions of variability in the human population.
Dear Dr. Grover,

Thanks for your reply to my presentation. I agree that the technology for including variability in simulation programs exists, but so far I have not come across a program that really have done this. Perhaps you can give me a reference?
