A major objective of the JTMD project was to characterize the biodiversity of the arriving and landed JTMD fauna and flora. One constituent of the landed biota were mussels in the genus Mytilus, known to be member of a species complex (including species native to western North America). We therefore undertook genetic analysis of Mytilus contained on JTMD for purposes of species identification. To augment morphological assessment of diversity of JTMD fouling organisms, we performed metabarcoding, in which bulk samples were extracted for DNA and DNA barcoding markers sequenced in parallel.
