The technology is featured alongside various new tools that are transforming marine science, as researchers rush to understand how coral reefs are affected by overfishing, pollution, global warming and ocean acidification.
Atsuko blogs on the debut of a PRL-built device that measures coral reef health. "If we continue the current practice of land-use, with no further pollution control, over-fishing & etc., coral reefs would disappear by 2070."
The Kramer lab is using its homegrown tech, PhotosynQ, towards improving bean production in this African country, where 60 percent of the population lives in poverty and more than 350,000 people suffer from food insecurity.
The Kramer lab has built a new technology – called PhotosynQ – that is teaching scientists new things about plants. Now, they want to use it to enrich science learning.By By Igor Houwat, Stefanie Tietz, Ruby Carrillo; Banner image courtesy of Kramer lab

MSU scientists have developed a new gene discovery method that is helping them to understand how plants recover from stressful situations in their environments.
A new study from the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) shows how some algae can protect themselves when the oxygen they produce impairs their photosynthetic activity. The discovery also answers a long-standing question about how algae survive when CO2 levels are low.
Using innovative methodologies that combine biology and statistics, researchers from the Kramer lab at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) observe the ways plants respond to their natural environments.
