Claire’s March Goals

Posted in tumblelog

This has been reposted from our lab tumblelog

My main goal for this month is to analyze samples examining methylation during early oyster development.  Now that I have my files in a recognizable format for visualization and analysis I can start comparing sperm, egg, and larvae samples methylation patterns and am excited to thoroughly dive into this data.  I will investigate the similarities and differences between these samples and will document my findings in a manuscript I’m currently working on.  This will give me a better shot at winning Pub-a-thon this year (watch out Mac)!  Aside from my main goal of analyzing this data I want to continually strive to practice reproducibility with my research.  I began this project working with 28 very large files which has proven difficult, and I want to ensure that everything pertaining to this dataset and project is thoroughly documented and reproducible.
