E-MTAB-1622 - Transcription profiling by array of gills from Gulf killifish Fundulus grandis collected at three field sites over four time points before and after the arrival of contaminating crude oil spill
Released on 18 April 2013, last updated on 3 May 2014
In this study we characterize the gill transcriptome changes that coincide with the arrival of contaminating oil in field-collected Gulf killifish Fundulus grandis. Gill transcription was contrasted before and after the arrival of oil, and between oil impacted and reference sites. Animals were sampled from field sites at four times. The oil impacted site is Grand Terre Island Louisiana (GT) and the two reference sites are Bay St. Louis Mississippi (BSL) and Bayou La Batre Alabama (BLB). The first timepoint (05/01/2010 to 05/09/2010) was before the arrival of contaminating oil, the second and third timepoints (06/28/2010 to 06/29/2010, and 08/30/2010 to 09/01/2010) were after the arrival of contaminating oil, and the fourth timepoint 08/28/2011) was over a year after the arrival of contaminating oil.
