Dear coral listener,
I am shailendra patap sonkar, MS in Marine Biotechnology, currently working as Research Fellow and pursuing my research work on “Molecular diversity in Indian scleractinian coral population from Lakshdweep islands, India” using ITS and mt-SSU r RNA gene from National Institute of oceanography, India.
Dear all, I have one question to know from you  that how we can enhance the growth speed of all coral at genetic level. I have read that the growth of coral is very very slow so can we try to do some modification at genetic level to enhance the growth speed of these cnidarians?? Hope I will get some positive comments.
I am currently looking for some lab, which can provide me training on interpretation and analysis molecular data to study of population genetic structure for a short period. It can be great help to me. I have no problem to share my publication that respective lab or person.
Looking forward for concern positive reply.
