Mon. April 8, 2019 Salmon Sea lice Project

Salmon sea lice project

  • met with Steven and Christian today about directions for epigenetic exploration of salmon infected with sea lice
  • need to determine best method for epigenetic analysis for these samples (e.g. ATAC-seq, amplicon BS-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.)
    • it’s hard to say how well the chromatin structure is maintained in ethanol fixed samples (see ATAC-seq references on Epigenome methods slide. This could contribute to variation between individuals.
    • From the references I found so far (see Epigenome methods slide), it seems like RRBS or amplicon BS sequencing would be the better way to go.
