Bryan Wislon
Dr. Bryan Wilson is a coral biologist at the University of Oxford and a recent recipient of a QIAGEN RNA-seq Grant. Dr. Wilson is studying the resilience and recovery of coral reefs under a rapidly changing climate, using a combination of traditional ecological methods bolstered by new cutting-edge genomic tools. His research aims to characterize reefs along a spectrum of anthropogenic impacts, focusing on corals in one of the world's most remote reef systems, the Chagos Archipelago in the Central Indian Ocean, which is also home to the world's rarest coral, Ctenella chagius.
