Project update :
The university have been finding high quality samples of DNA from the extraction process. We're sending them more shed skins over the next week to get more DNA extracted. Another month or so and we should be able to move on to the sequencing to look for similarities. Good progress!


As far as I'm aware, they're moving on to the sequencing now.
