Finally back in the lab

After spending the majority of our time collecting samples and doing water chemistry on site, we are all back in our lab ready to do DNA extractions and PCR galore. Unfortunately, the kim wipes we used to scrub microbes off the walls of the tanks are too large to fit into our tubes with the extraction beads. After about an hour of stressing and improvising, we were able to get a usable amount of supernatant…or so we hope. We will find out after we do our PCR.
