@ Genspace, DNA barcoding.

I brought a number of samples to the lab for barcoding. Three of them were plant speciment taken from the Union Square market, and the other from the algae farm that was recently brought to our 12th floor lab.

The samples underwent a number of steps which allowed us to concentrate the speciment into a useful pellet which could be sent off for barcoding.
