June 2019 goals

Accomplished last month:

O. lurida 2017-2018 project (OA/Temp carryover)

  • Revised MS based on co-author feedback and for general improvements
  • Sent for 2nd round of comments.

O. lurida 2018 project (Temp/Food carryover)

  • Finished 1st draft discussion
  • Correlated CV for larval shell length/width with # larvae released that day (is CV higher with more larvae?) Answer: no.

Bypass & admin:

  • Compiled draft application, including draft dissertation
  • Scheduled committee meeting


  • Met with Krista N. re: NSF GRIP, interesting Dungeness crab project looking at larval epigenomes in various pCO2
  • Submitted NSF GRFP funding request for next year (final year)

Oly methylation data:

  • Pulled matrices for Katherine

Oly QuantSeq data & future steps:

  • Expanded plan of attack. Would like to include some juvenile Port Gamble whole-body samples to compare those with high pCO2 parental histories vs. no history, in the location where parental history correlated with survival
