corals bleaching

A Rutgers researcher will use genomics, genetics, and cell biology to identify and understand the corals’ response to heat stress conditions and to pinpoint master regulatory genes involved in coral bleaching due to global warming and climate change. The research team will use a novel gene-editing tool, as a resource to knock down some gene functions with the goal of boosting the corals’ abilities to survive.

Collaboration Between RCSB Protein Data Bank and Amazon Web Services

The RCSB Protein Data Bank, headquartered at the Rutgers Institute for Quantitative Biomedicine, announced the expansion of its data storage capacity through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Open Data Sponsorship Program. The AWS program is providing the Protein Data Bank with more than 100 terabytes of storage for no-cost delivery of information to millions of scientists, educators, and students around the world who are working in fundamental biology, biomedicine, bioenergy, bioengineering and biotechnology.
