DNA Testing to Help Save Corals

Date: 1/7/2014

To avert coral demise, experts report the establishment of DNA markers that might be applicable to all species of the Acropora reef-building coral, giving accurate identification to individual corals.
The technique, similar to DNA profiling in humans, enables the study of
genetic diversity and connectivity, thus finding clues to help with the
conservation of coral reef ecosystems in waters worldwide.
