Genetic Basis of Color Diversity in Coral Reefs Discovered

7 hours ago − University of Southampton
Scientists from the University of Southampton have discovered the genetic basis which allows corals to produce their stunning range of colours. They have found that instead of using a single gene to control pigment production, corals use multiple copies of the same gene. Depending on how many genes are active, the corals will become more or less colourful. …
