Science Sunday: Coral genetics on Guam?

It’s time for another great Science Sunday! Check it out this weekend on Nov. 18 at 2pm at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center.  Dr. Sarah Lemer is this month’s guest speaker. Get a preview of this Science Sunday here.  How does coral genetics research help with reef conservation? Watch this video to find out.

Guam has experienced mass coral bleaching over the past five years from high water temperatures. Though many corals died from these bleaching events, some corals survived. Dr. Sarah Lemer, an evolutionary biologist, seeks to find out which genes in these surviving corals make them resilient to bleaching. Dr. Lemer is a member of Guam’s EPSCoR research team at the University of Guam. 

Science Sunday is free and open to the public. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. No pre-registration required.
