本数据库由海南大学海洋学院造礁珊瑚生态遗传实验室建设和维护,本实验室十几年来专注于海洋生物(造礁珊瑚和海洋贝类)的群体遗传结构的演变和遗传连通性的研究,以及分子标记辅助育种。在全球气候变化的大背景下,由于表层海水温度升高和环境变化,珊瑚礁这一重要的热带海洋生态系统正在加速衰退。我们目前的研究兴趣聚焦于两方面,其一,解析由造礁珊瑚幼虫的漂移导致的基因流遗传连通性以及集合种群的遗传结构,指导珊瑚礁人工保护和恢复区域网络的设计和建设;其二,探索造礁珊瑚适应性的遗传学基础,利用遗传改良策略培育对环境变化适应性更强的珊瑚类群,用于珊瑚礁的移植和补充,从而增强珊瑚礁的恢复力,以适应仍将持续加剧的气候和环境变化。

由于我们水平有限,本数据库必定存在很多错漏,恳请各位读者指正,并欢迎各位读者对我们提出批评和建议。可以在本网站留言,也可以给我们发邮件,或者到海南来莅临指导。欢迎各位。

This database is constructed and maintained by the Laboratory of Reef-building Coral Ecogenetics, Hainan University. Our lab focuses on the genetic connectivity and population genetic structure of marine organisms (corals and shellfishes), as well as molecular marker assisted breeding. In recent years my concern is especially on the population genetics of stony corals as we know now coral reefs, the most important marine ecosystem, are declining worldwide at an unprecedented rate. The ongoing projects are: 1. Population connectivity of stony corals, which plays a fundamental role in structure, genetic diversity, and the resilience of populations, and is essential for design and management of MPA (marine protected area) networks. 2. Genetic improvement of stony corals: using molecular marker assisted breeding to develop coral stocks with enhanced stress tolerance, and by supplement and transplantation of these genetic-improved corals, we could reinforce the resilience of coral reefs. Now we are especially focusing on the massive coral Galaxea fascicularis, which is not so sensitive to temperature and probably will be a good choice for coral transplantation and restoration on the background of global warming.

Due to our limited knowledge, there must be a lot of mistakes and omissions in this database. We sincerely hope you would correct us, and, any comment and suggestion are very welcomed. You can leave a message in this website, you also can send us email, or come to Hainan and give us guidance. You are welcomed.
