Summary of Science Dome operations: In the morning the science dome was used to run one gel visualisation of the functional PCR test carried out yesterday on the DNA extracted from the "soil 2" sample and found that the DNA contains the large subunit gene hhyL of the group 1h [NiFe]-hydrogenases, potentially meaning that there are organisms present in the soil that perform hydrogen oxidation. In the afternoon non-targeted PCR run and gel visualisation of DNA extracted from media that appears to have grown microorganisms from previous inoculations, ultimately no DNA was found in the extracts.
