Great little thread on students recently sequencing various fish DNA (sushi; store-bought filets), as reported by their TA.




My favorite result: "It was escolar. THIS IS DANGEROUS. Can cause extreme gastrointestinal distress."


My second-favorite result: "BODY LOUSE. Think about how much there must be in that sample to override fish DNA!"

But you know if bourdain were to feature a skewer of salmon lice in some Asian night market it'd become a hit.
sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns
