By combining genomic and environmental data on coral reefs, a team led by Columbia University scientists have developed a model for predicting coral bleaching, a stress event triggered by increased water temperatures and linked to climate change. The investigators generated a chromosome-scale genome assembly for the coral Acropora millepora, which they compared with whole-genome sequences for 237 phenotyped samples collected at 12 reefs along the Great Barrier Reef.
