In just over 2 years, we developed 26 studies together with partner institutions, public and private universities, in addition to the Brazilian Navy. Do you know how this is possible? part of the value of the Annual Membership Program is allocated to the research carried out here.
In a partnership between the AquaRio Scientific Research Center and the Molecular Microbial Ecology Laboratory (LEMM) of the UFRJ Institute of Microbiology and the Plant Biotechnology and Bioprocesses Program (PBV) of UFRJ, an innovative study began in October 2016 which aims to protect and restore coral reefs around the world threatened by bleaching and other diseases. The innovative approach of this ongoing research, which has proven to be extremely sustainable and viable and which aims to protect and restore coral reefs around the world threatened by bleaching and other diseases, establishes the beneficial manipulation of natural marine microbiomes, which are already there and are native to these ecosystems, to protect these coral environments.
