Mark Hay to Receive Cody Award in Ocean Sciences from Scripps Institute

Professor Mark Hay, Teasley Chair in Environmental Biology and Co-Director of the Aquatic Chemical Ecology Center at Georgia Tech, has been selected as the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Cody Award in Ocean Sciences from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Professor Hay will give two public(free) lectures at Scripps on Jun 14th & 15th.

Doug Rasher receives first Teasley Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Aquatic Chemical Ecology

Doug Rasher, Ph.D. student in Biology, is the first recipient of the Teasley Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Aquatic Chemical Ecology. This award is equivalent to the GIT Presidential Fellowship but is awarded for demonstrated research productivity rather than promise. Congratulations Doug!!

Compounds from Tropical Seaweed May be Promising Anti-malarial Drugs

A group of chemical compounds used by a species of tropical seaweed to ward off fungus attacks may have promising anti-malarial properties for humans. The compounds are part of a unique chemical signaling system that seaweeds use to battle enemies -- and that may provide a wealth of potential new pharmaceutical compounds...

In the Depths of Aquarius

Mark Hay checked his scuba gear one last time, then stepped off a boat and dived toward the seafloor. His destination was Aquarius, the only manned underwater lab in operation in the world. The metal structure—about the size of a school bus—is anchored 60 feet beneath the surface near a flourishing coral reef a few miles off Key Largo...

Ancient invertebrate animals regulate sex with chemical cues

A new study shows that humans and tiny aquatic animals known as rotifers have something important in common when it comes to sex. Barely visible without a microscope, rotifers eat algae and serve primarily as food for baby fish. But the females of certain rotifer species can do something quite unusual: they can reproduce asexually by creating clones of themselves, or they can initiate a process that allows sexual reproduction by producing male rotifers.
