A researcher needs to split 26 plants into two treatment groups of 13 plants each. How many different groupings can be formed?

I think it is just    26 C 13    =   26! / (  13! 13!)

Guest would be right if the groups were distinct, but if they are indistiguishable it would be half that or $$\frac{\binom{26}{13}}{2}$$
