Data Management – Black Abalone Histology Scores

As part of the qPCR validation for the withering syndrome phage (RLOv) project, I needed to identify (and, eventually locate) samples that are infected with varying levels of RLOv. This is probably the most time consuming aspect of the project.

I found the histology scoring sheets and added them to an existing Google Sheet that Lisa had partially completed a few years ago: Black Abalone: Expt 1 – WS & Phage

To save time, I only entered the scores into the spreadsheet and did not enter any extra info (like Sex or Coccidia).

Having this data in a single, digital format will allow me to sort the data, to quickly & easily select the appropriate samples with varying levels of RLOv (categorized as “New” on the sheet).

Here are links to pics of the histology scoring sheets for reference:

Next up will be to actually track down the physical samples. This will be a bit of a daunting task…
