Kentucky Cave Shrimp!!!

My collaborator Dr. Bernie Kuhajda at the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute (TNACI) has successfully collected several specimens of the endangered Kentucky Cave Shrimp (Palaemonias ganteri).  Tissue samples were carefully collected from the shrimps and the animals were safely released.  My lab has already successfully extracted genomic DNA from the samples and will begin sequencing a number of nuclear and mitochondrial genes.
