Florida Red Tide Aging Process May Help Predict When Harmful Algal Blooms will Dissipate

Extensive changes in gene expression were revealed in an NCCOS study of aging in Florida red tides. These changes reflect alterations in metabolism that may provide the tools necessary for developing markers indicative of waning Florida red tide blooms. These results were found using a DNA microarray designed by the NCCOS HAB Genomics Project for […]
