Pacific corals in 'worrying' state: researchers

A survey of Pacific corals has found many severely bleached, some near-dead, according to marine researchers who warned Wednesday that global warming threatened the precious ecosystem's very survival.

Biologists identify ancient stress response in corals

Stanford marine biologists have discovered that corals activate a specific group of ancient, defensive genes when exposed to stressful environmental conditions. These stress-induced genes could serve as a kind of warning ...

Corals much older than previously thought, study finds

Coral genotypes can survive for thousands of years, possibly making them the longest-lived animals in the world, according to researchers at Penn State, the National Marine Fisheries Service and Dial Cordy & Associates.

Scientists seek genetic reasons for coral reef survival

High-tech genome mapping of coral species from Guam's marine environment put scientists from the University of Guam's Marine Laboratory at the forefront of coral reef research. Using the NextSeq 500, a newly installed genetic ...
