Molecular analysis of the Sydney rock oyster (Saccostrea glomerata) CO2 stress response


Human activities have led to a substantial increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emission, with further increases predicted. A RNA-Seq study on adult Saccostrea glomerata was carried out to examine the molecular response of this bivalve species to elevated pCO2. 234 more words


Five Big Mysteries About CRISPR

It has been known for a long time that prokaryotes do not have an immune system like the one in vertebrates that uses antibodies. However, it was recently discovered that they have a genetic system that kind of works like immunological memory against invading bacteriophages. 446 more words

Regional adaptation defines sensitivity to future ocean acidification

Physiological responses to temperature are known to be a major determinant of species distributions and can dictate the sensitivity of populations to global warming. In contrast, little is known about how other major global change drivers, such as ocean acidification (OA), will shape species distributions in the future. 134 more words
