Algorithm ranks thermotolerance of algae
Evanston IL (SPX) Jun 16, 2016

The novel algorithm could help assess and predict the future of coral bleaching events by better understanding the coral's symbiotic partner: algae. "Coral is not an independent organism," said Luisa Marcelino, research assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering. "It depends on algae that lives in its ... read more
