Enteroctopus Sampling Effects on Genetic Data, Prince William Sound, Alaska, 2012-2015

Data Download [207KB] | Metadata | AK Science Portal | Project Site | Date Range: 2012 - 2015

These are genetic data collected from replicated samples of 21 Enteroctopus (E. dofleini or a cryptic lineage) in Prince William Sound Alaska to evaluate tissue type, DNA extraction method, and time until analyses are completed on data reliability. Data collected from all samples include two microsatellites identified as possible lineage indicators, and nine microsatellite loci previously identified as polymorphic in both lineages. DNA sequence data from 528 bp of the octopine dehydrogenase (OCDE) gene were also collected.
