Yesterday I tried dissecting another Lineus sp. egg mass with gastrulae, but I basically failed. The jelly was too sticky and hard to get rid off. I did a 10 min step in 5% Cystein to see what happened and the jelly became more elastic, but still hard to work on. I then left the dish shaking in the cold room overnight.

Today I found out that the whole jelly became flakes and the egg bundles were loose, ready to be dissected. Pretty cool. The embryos looked ok, but I’m not sure they were still developing. I will try this again.
