April Goals Recap:

i.e. me marveling at the ambition I had

Virginica Gonad Methylation:

  • Modified paper repo so analysis is easily reproducible
  • Refined my DML analysis and (almost) finished refning the general methylation analysis
  • Didnt’ get to DMR or gene-level analysis because I am still sorting out issues with the general methylation trend analysis

Virginica Sperm:

  • I was focusing on the gonad methylation paper so I haven’t thought about lab work

Other:

May Goals

i.e. me trying to set some realistic expectations for this month while also trying to achieve everything I didn’t do last week and making progress beyond that

Virginica Gonad Methylation:

  • Troubleshoot CpG counts and finalize general methylation trends by May 3
  • Preliminary description of genes with differentially methylated loci by May 5
  • Differentially methylated region analysis by May 7
  • Differentially methylated gene analysis by May 9
  • Discussion outline by May 9
  • Draft paper by May 12
  • Paper submission to bioRXiv by May 31

Gigas Gonad and Larvae Methylation:

  • Have MBD workflow meeting
  • Extract RNA
  • Process DNA for bisulfite sequencing
  • Send DNA and RNA for sequencing
  • Develop plan for processing larval samples

Virginica Sperm Methylation:

  • Identify samples for RNA-Seq
  • Extract RNA
  • Process DNA for bisulfite sequencing
  • Send DNA and RNA for sequencing

Other:

  • Identify a GSR
  • Schedule a committee meeting for summer
