Hey Everyone I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out. I am going to have access to a large number of Daphnia of varying species this summer and I was going to take subsamples and save them for a later date. I want to eventually be able to use them for genetic sequencing but I will not be able to extract any DNA from the Daphnia right away. I was going to initially store them in 70% ethanol and store them in the freezer, because when I worked in an RNA lab we store precipitated DNA in isopropanol and I think a buffer and then put them in a freezer. I then read online somewhere that storing them in ethanol could skew the results when they were used to run gels. So I was wondering if anyone had any idea of how I could store whole Daphnia until it came time for me to start extracting the DNA and sequencing. It will probably be anywhere from 1 to 2 years before I would actually be able to sequence them. Any advice would be helpful.
