Genetics

The Coral Genetics Working Group’s aim is to develop recommendations on several issues related to coral genetics, for example:

  • guidelines on how to characterize out-planted genotypes
  • a clearinghouse of genotypic information on outplants
  • quantitative recommendations on how to maintain and enhance genetic diversity over a given geographic region

 

What We’re Working On

  • Close to submitting two scientific papers on restoration genetic strategies for Caribbean corals and their dinoflagellate symbionts, including a paper on biomarkers for restoration genetics
  • Discussing future needs for supporting coral restoration through genetics
