    About This Project

    We urgently need to understand whether corals can adapt to rising ocean temperatures, but genetic experiments are challenging in the slow-growing corals that build reefs. To overcome this obstacle, we're developing the "golfball coral" (Favia fragum), which grows and reproduces rapidly in captivity, as a genetic model for studying adaptation in corals. This resource will enable studies within just a few years that would take decades in other coral species.
