10 October, 2020Educational Outreach Activity for TKS Students
Students in TKS' K-1 classes visited Nemo this fall. Members of Prof. Michael Berumen's Reef Ecology Lab in the Red Sea Research Center (RSRC) prepared an educational outreach activity to teach K-1 students how baby Red Sea anemone fish choose a sea anemone.
17 October, 2020KAUST global research team first to observe inherited DNA expressions
On February 10, KAUST announced new research demonstrating that corals pass patterns of DNA to their offspring. The groundbreaking research marks the first time that this process has been observed in animals within the field of biology.
