A new study by Three Seas Alumnus Jason Selwyn and MSC graduate student Alan Downey-Wall illustrates how chaotic genetic patchiness in tropical gobies can offer insight into the genetic structure of marine ecosystems.
Associate Professor Jen Bowen, PhD student Patrick Kearns, and their colleagues’ research in the Great Marsh suggest that microbes play an important role in the provision of ecological services.
The MSC is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Jen Bowen to Northeastern and to Nahant, where her expertise in marine microbial communities will benefit the academics, research, and outreach of the Center.
Assistant Professor Katie Lotterhos recently applied her statistical analysis expertise to to determine which conifer genes are adapting to climate change
MSC Outreach Co-op Andrew Madanjian shares reflections from his experience with the Coastal Ocean Science Academy high school program
New research from Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues examines how environmental variation across a coastline can alter potential impacts of climate change on key organisms like mussels.
A team of researchers at the MSC’s Ocean Genome Legacy has identified and described a rare species of seagrass boring shipworm, making important genetic and life history information available to the wider scientific community.
It’s a warm summer morning at the Marine Science Center, and as per usual, a white Northeastern van has just pulled through the gate and 12 undergraduate students pile out and head to their various labs ready for a full day of hands-on research and learning. Many hands make light work, and MSC researchers were […]
The Ocean Genome Legacy’s Second Annual Nahant Coastal BioBlitz came off a great success on Sunday, September 11th, with over 100 citizen scientists learning about local marine biodiversity and ecosystems.
Undergraduate Laura Goetz describes what a typical day is like working with icefish while on co-op in Professor Bill Detrich’s lab at Palmer Station in Antarctica.
