New work by MSC PhD student Rebecca Certner and Associate Professor Steve Vollmer identifies mechanisms by which disease can spread in endangered coral species.
Cutting edge DNA sequencing technology has allowed MSC researchers to decipher complex phylogenetic relationships between Pacific reef-building corals.
Researchers are measuring genetic response to stress in an intertidal snail, and results shed light on the complexity of response to abiotic vs. biotic stressors.
The diverse assemblage of microbes that inhabit the bodies of all living organisms has been recently called the next great frontier of scientific exploration. The microbes that make up the human microbiome outnumber our own cells 10 to 1, and scientists are only just beginning to understand the role of these microbial mutualists in humans […]
MSC students Sarah Gignoux-Wolfsohn and Felicia Aronson turned to crowdfunding to support their work on examining white-band disease, which has killed up to 95% of the Caribbean’s reef building corals.
As featured in today’s Boston Globe, there are many mutual benefits to the Ocean Genome Legacy’s move to the Marine Science Center.
Do marine snails really stress about heat? MSC researchers look into what separates populations of whelks along northwest Atlantic coast.
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.
