Rebecca Vega-Thurber and the team in her lab at OSU investigate the microbial ecology of reefs in the Red Sea, the Caribbean and the Pacific. In this Science Pub, Vega-Thurber will describe what she has learned about how microbes influence the health of coral reefs. By better understanding the coral microbiome, Vega-Thurber argues, new methods for conserving reefs can be discovered.
In addition to her presentation, the Science Pub will offer scenes from “Saving Atlantis,” a documentary about the Global Coral Microbiome Project.
Doors at 5:30 p.m.; Presentation starts at 6:30 p.m.
We are at capacity for this event.
