The CV is a statistical parameter that describes variance of data.

For each group of data (e.g. wells of plates) CVs are calculated for each selected subset (e.g. control wells of a plate).

CV = sd(x[subset] / mean(x[subset]) * 100
CV = mad(x[subset] / median(x[subset]) * 100

Select the column to define the groups (e.g. "barcode" for plate-wise CVs).
Select subset column / well annotation column
Column with well annotations (e.g. treatment)
Choose subset(s) / well annotation(s)
Select one or many subsets for which CVs are calculated (e.g. "negative control").

Median and mad will be calculated instead of mean and sd.
Select the columns for which CVs will be calculated.
