Some cool scientists need your help!

Can corals adapt to climate change?

This is one of the most critical unknowns in reef conservation planning, very difficult to assess experimentally. @MikhailMatz team at University of Texas at Austin proposes an original solution:

Using state-of-the-art genomic approaches, they will reconstruct rises and falls of Caribbean reefs in response to past climate changes over the last 100,000 years. 

This project is crowdfunded, so you can help this research directly. Even $25 helps, but there is also “adopt a coral genome” option that will merit a personal acknowledgment in the forthcoming research paper and the note “Adopted by…” accompanying the genome release.
