They’re going to add old sand, rocks, and animals from old reef tank next week, which will be crucial in our succession study. Fortunately (not!) next week is finals week for us undergrads. So basically our study breaks will consist of Sampling and water chemistry!
Then over break David and Matt will get to have all the fun while the rest of us go home. But when we come back there will be so many DNA extractions to do I won’t even know where to start.
Today I did some DNA extractions from Day 1 and 2′s sediment samples of the new Coral Pond.
