MSC Vollmer Lab researchers uses gene sequencing to identify potential disease causing pathogens in Caribbean staghorn coral.
A new study co-authored by Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier illustrates how monitoring environmental variation can improve the predictive and experimental power of scientists studying the impacts of climate change on marine life.
Many coral reefs around the globe suffer from white band disease. Researchers at the MSC are looking into the innate immune system of some of these Acroporid corals.
Most species are content with just one form of reproduction, but not for the coral p. damicornis. These guys make babies sexually and asexually. Doctoral candidate David Combosch wants to know why.
