Sequence Data that never made it


Over the past several years our lab has experimented with a variety of high-throughput sequencing platforms with the ultimate goal of addressing important scientific questions. On a few occasions we have been successful. Some of our early work included Roche 454 GS-FLX pyrosequencing used to examine phenotypic plasticity in lake trout (FREDERICK 2010), identify single nucleotide polymorphisms in salmon (E. 2011) and develop genomic resources for Pacific herring (B. 2012).
