Tissue Sampling – Crassostrea virginica Tissues for Archiving

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)
  • Ctenidia
  • Lower mantle
  • Muscle
  • Gonad

Samples were transferred to 1.7mL snap cap tubes, frozen on dry ice, and stored @ -80C in Rack 13, Col 1, Row 5.
