DecaPod S1E11: Crab Meeting #5

This week Pam tells us about her recent experience on a survey on the Bering Sea, and we discuss our new plan.

The original RNA extraction method using RNAzol RT resulted in low RNA yields, as well as contaminated samples, likely due to excess salts. We have submitted a pooled sample to the NWGC for library prep and sequencing. The pooled sample consists of samples from day 26 (samples were taken in triplicate) from cold and ambient infected and uninfected treatments. This library will be used for gene discovery.

As we continue investigating better methods for RNA extraction, we will create libraries that will be used for comparison between treatment groups.
