Fish Sample Integrity: Coho liver samples and Rainbow Trout tissue

Information from Dr. Abraham Aviv, Rutgers
Samples were provided by SR Lab

First analysis phase: DNA integrity

9 samples degraded: loss of margins of the dense DNA band (crown) and presence of high intensity tail (smear)Aviv_fishsamples_DNAintegrity

Rest are ok.

Up next: measuring terminal restriction fragment length (telomere length: TL) in the good samples
Issue: whether or not TL will be within range to use Southern blot methodology
