Researchers from Stanford University tested how corals grew in various temperatures. They compared known heat resistant corals to heat sensitive corals under extreme heat conditions and monitored their genes (not “jeans”) to identify which genes were responsible for providing the heat resistant corals with the ability to survive in extreme temperatures (extreme bleaching conditions). The researchers found 60 gene behaviour differences between the two types of corals. The genes of the heat sensitive corals acted faster to kill cells as a response to increased temperature whereas the heat tolerant coral species did not kill cells, but grew in the same temperatures.
