Remains of the Day
- Got MBA strawberry samples (topsoil 0-6 inches deep numbered 1-16, deeper soil 6-12 inches deep numbered 17-32, and 96 sick or healthy roots) ready for chemical analysis and took some (80 wet grams of subsoil plus 20 wet grams of topsoil ontop) for arrugula - pythium assay in growth room. Only did samples 1-16 today (with 25-37 as subsoil on the bottom)
- Used SRD2R complete chemical analysis program for the chem analysis
- George suggests we extract DNA from each of the 96 roots they sent and screen them for bacteria and fungus as well as the oomycetes we've committed to doing. Lots of work...
