I figured it’d be prudent to collect some Eastern oyster (Crassotrea virginica) to have around the lab.
I used one of the C.virginica oysters that I picked up Taylor on 20171210 for sampling.
- Upper mantle (avoided area that was near gonad/white-ish)
- Lower mantle
Samples were transferred to 1.7mL snap cap tubes, frozen on dry ice, and stored @ -80C in Rack 13, Col 1, Row 5.
