These 21 video clips document the sampling events for the tunicate Synoicum adareanum in support of a microbiome and biosynthetic gene cluster study. The sampling strategy involved seven sites, including Janus Island, Boneparte Point, Norsel Point, Delaca Island, Laggard Island, Killer Whale Rocks and Litchfield Island, which are all in the Palmer Archipeligo near the US Antarctic base at Palmer Station. At each site, at least three lobes of S. adareanum were collected, resulting in a set of 63 samples for microbiome analysis. Metadata associated with each video clip includes site, date, time, depth and water temperature. An associated pdf file also contains the metadata along with the time the samples were frozen.
Video was edited to focus on environment (including a pause early in each clip), water sampling event, and/or bagging procedure.
