Effects of seawater acidification on gene expression: resolving broader-scale trends in sea urchins

Posted on OA: 01 Aug 2014  Sea urchins are ecologically and economically important calcifying organisms threatened by acidification of the global ocean caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Propelled by the sequencing of the purple sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus) genome, profiling changes in gene expression during exposure to high pCO2 seawater
