Summer Research Experience 2017

Date: Thursday, February 16, 2017 - 15:15
Guam EPSCoR seeks to increase the number and diversity of students who choose Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers by engaging students in its Summer Research Experience Program (SRE), applications for which are now available. EPSCoR students in SRE Program may participate in field and lab studies that document coral reef ecosystems—with emphasis in EPSCoR’s two major research areas: coral genetics and oceanography.

Cyberinfrastructure Update

Date: Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 10:00
Guam’s strategic location in the Pacific uniquely positions the island to become a regional leader for research and education networking. A major goal for Guam EPSCoR is to support the development of a cyberinfrastructure that will promote collaborative academic efforts and research opportunities for higher education, emerging technologies, cultural growth and economic development.

UOG Scientists Seek Genetic Reasons for Coral Reef Survival

Date: Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 03:00
Category: Public
High-tech genome mapping of coral species from Guam’s marine environment put scientists from the University of Guam’s Marine Laboratory at the forefront of coral reef research. Using the NextSeq 500, a newly installed genetic sequencer, UOG scientists are investigating how fragile coral reefs and marine ecosystems adapt to extreme environmental changes, including impacts associated with climate change such as warmer ocean waters, excessive sedimentation, and ocean acidification.
