Research

Historically, the common denominator to our work is the use of Cnidarian Genomics to answer a wide array of ecological and evolutionary questions. For example, our studies on Cnidarian symbioses often times focused on the cases of Orbicella corals, Cassiopea jellysfish; and, their algal and bacterial communities. For more information about these please visit the Orbicella and Cassiopea resources pages.

We aim to improve conservation efforts by better understanding how corals behave under different scenarios like experimental bleaching, experimental transplanting and natural conditions such as the thrieving Varadero Reef in the Colombian Caribbean coast. We invite you to look into our -Story of Varadero- page!
