Setting up an Oyster Garden | Getting My Genes Wet

Last week Katherine arrived at Manchester. Check out her recent post on her plans

An excerpt:

My project this summer is to raise oysters descended from three Puget Sound populations under common conditions in order to measure differences in fitness. This type of experimental design is commonly referred to as a “common garden”, and allows one to control environmental variables so that phenotypic disparities among individuals can be attributed to their genetic differences.
