Recent work by a team of experts including MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries, highlights the importance of research integrating information across a range of spatial and biological scales to better understand the threat that ocean acidification poses for corals.
New research by Three Seas Alumnus Nathaniel Chu and Associate Professor Steven Vollmer provides important information about the assemblage of microbes living in association with Caribbean corals.
Senate Democrats are three times more likely to follow science-related Twitter accounts than their Republican peers, according to a new study led by Professor Brian Helmuth.
In an NU SCI Magazine article, MES student Margaret Blagbrough discusses a new study about how commercially valuable marine organisms along the northeast continental shelf might be vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Why so few sea stars in the MSC touch tanks? OGL samples are being used by Cornell researchers to crack the case and find out what pathogen is causing sea stars to ‘waste away’.
The first annual MSC graduate student symposium was an opportunity for the community to learn more about the diversity of research going on, and for participants to gain peer feedback on their progress.
As the Metro Boston Regional Service Provider for the MassBays National Estuary Program, the MSC is conducting an inventory of citizen science in the region. The following summarizes the intent and scope of a survey designed to help us characterize the scope, scale, and nature of local efforts. What’s the purpose of the inventory? We are […]
Three Seas students, who just departed from 2 months at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories, recently undertook a bioblitz with the MSC’s Ocean Genome Legacy.
MSC Associate Professor Steven Vollmer explains why coral bleaching, typically the result of warming ocean temperatures, could lead to “the ocean’s equivalent of a rainforest with no trees.”
The Ocean Genome Legacy is excited to be collaborating with the Austrian Academy of Sciences to study marine genomes in the search for new cancer therapies.
