Scientists Study Effect of Warm Water on Coral


Visiting scientist Garen Baghdasarian and his students from Santa Monica College joined HIMB postdoc Keisha Bahr in the MakerLab to investigate how corals may be impacted by warmer water temperatures.  The team is exposing small colonies of coral to thermal stress and measuring changes in their DNA and protein profiles.  But it wasn’t all work and no play – they managed to squeeze in  some fun time as well.
