Today we sampled Jesse, the Olympia oyster selected for genome sequencing. Not as big of a specimen as yesterday, but made up for it with video.
The oyster was collected in Fidalgo Bay, weighing in at 58.99 grams and 70 mm long.
The adductor muscle was selected for genome sequencing, thus quickly rinsed in 10% bleach.
Other tissues were sampled for RNA-seq
Samples were placed in two boxes, for redundancy.
