Samples Received

Samples Received – White Abalone DNA from CDFW Shellfish Health Lab

Received white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni) DNA extracted from digestive gland, post-esophagus, and feces from Jim Moore and Blythe Marshman at the California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife.

These are intended for qPCR to assess presence of the RLOv.

Samples were stored in the big -20C in FSH 240.

Samples Received – Coral DNA from Jose M. Eirin-Lopez (Florida International University)

Steven received these coral DNA samples today. Here’s his post on Google Plus (stored @ 4C in FTR 213):

 

 

Here’s the email from Jose describing the samples:

“Dear Steven, the coral DNA samples were sent today by my student Javier (cc’ed here) to your lab. Here’s an excel attached with info for the samples including concentration and treatment of the coral from which they were extracted (N, nitrogen; NP, nitrogen+phosphorous; C, control).

Please let us know when you get these in the lab so we know all is fine!

thanks!

Chema”

Here’s the spreadsheet he sent (renamed for easier identification later on – original file sent was title DNA Qbit readings), uploaded to Google Drive:

Samples Received – Green Abalone Slides

Received green abalone (Haliotis fulgens) slides from Fiorenza Micheli (Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University). These are related to the tissue she sent to us on 20160519.

Unfortunately, the writing on the casettes that were submitted to DPMG came off during processing (see note on form below). As such, the facility was unable to identify which slides came from which histology blocks. Not sure what we’ll be able to do with these. The box of slides has been stored in FSH 236 with other slide boxes.

Specimens Received – Ceraesignum maximum in Ethanol

Received vials of C.maximum (a vermetid gastropod; a snail) from Craig Osenberg collected in Moorea, French Polynesia. Topped off samples with either 100% ethanol or 70% ethanol )depending on sample requirements specified on vial labels), sealed with Parafilm, and stored in the flammables cabinet in FSH 240.
