Update on July goals:
- I’m just waiting on a comments from a couple of people, but otherwise the Puget Sound common garden paper is written and ready to go
- I decided to use a mollusc-specific kit for RNA extractions from the abductor muscle because the QC/concentration kept being so low. Kit is now in and anticipating scallops will be sent off for sequencing next week.
- Got final confirmation that Mark and I won’t be able to outsource preparation of our TagSeq libraries at UT, so we will be buying a small kit and making test libraries this month.
- Waiting until August 7 or so to send probes off, as I want to check out one other potential transcriptome resource.
