Project Title: NECSI Project 6: Coral population genetics (Primnoa resedaeformis, Paragorgia arborea)
Project Summary

During the June, 2014 ROPOS cruise to the Northeast Atlantic Canyons, tissue samples of squat lobsters (N=6), Paragorgia arborea (N=3) and Primnoa resedaeformis (N=18) were taken for genetic analysis. DNA will be extracted from these samples using the Puregene DNA Tissue Kit (Gentra Systems). Primnoa resedaeformis samples will be genotyped at twelve microsatellite loci following methods in Morrison et al., 2015. Paragorgia arborea samples will be genotyped at nine microsatellite loci following methods of Coykendall et al., 2015. This project is conducted in collaboration with Dr. Cheryl Morrison at USGS.
