We just finished a fantastic week of field work in Puerto Rico! The Oakley Lab (me, Todd, and our amazing undergrad Stuart) worked in collaboration with Anders Garm and Jan Bilecki to gather Tripedelia jellyfish. We also recorded some incredible ostracod signals with WALLE, and even collected some of the elusive Jimmorinia to bring home! It was a beautiful place to see, and the boat drivers at the marine lab were THE BEST. We didn't miss a trap the entire trip, even collecting them at night.
Keep your fingers and tentacles crossed for a great Tripedelia genome to come soon!
