Qualitative analysis

Qualitative data analysis is the process of bringing order, structure and meaning to the mass of collected data. It is a messy, ambiguous, time-consuming, creative, and fascinating process. It does not proceed in a linear fashion; it is not neat. Qualitative data analysis is a search for general statements about relationships among categories of data.

Qualitative character

A character in which variation is discontinuous. A discrete, heritable character that is transmitted with well-defined limits and in a simple alternate manner.

Quality

Distinguishing character, the degree of excellence which is possessed.

Quality assurance

The system of procedures used in checking that the quality of a product is good.

Quality grain

The application of quality standards when selling grain. Good quality is indicated by a high specific weight.

Quantitative

The amount of a substance; measurable by assigning numerical value to indicate how many or how much.

Quantitative character

A heritable character that has continuous variation and is readily affected by the environment. Thus, classification into discrete categories is not possible.

Quantitative photoperiod reaction

The degree of the plant's responses to daylength.

Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL)

A genomic region which governs a phenotype by interaction with other genes.

Quantitative variation

Variation for characters caused by multiple genes or polygenes.

Quantum sensor

A quantum sensor is a device that exploits quantum correlations, such as quantum entanglement to achieve a sensitivity or resolution that is better than can achieved using only classical systems. Quantum sensor is also used in other settings where entangled quantum systems are exploited to make better atomic clocks, or more sensitive magnetometers.

Quarantine

A control or restraint upon the import, export or transportation of plants, animals or produce goods such as seeds and soil, designed to prevent the spread of disease or pest.

Questionnaire

Tool used to obtain information on any given subject from a survey.
