I received the Bioanalyzer data back for the geoduck foot RNA samples I submitted 20150422. The two samples were run on the RNA Pico chip assay.
Bioanalzyer 2100 Data File (XAD): SamWhite_Eukaryote Total RNA Pico_2015-04-23_13-04-16.xad
Data file requires 2100_Expert_B0208_SI648_SR2 version of the software (Windows).
The samples look really good! As we’ve seen previously in shellfish RNA, there is a single, prominent rRNA band/peak with very little degradation (smearing and/or no prominent peak/band).
Will proceed with RNA isolation from the remaining histology blocks.
