Jia Zhang's research undertook an in-depth study of Acropora coral population genomics using whole-genome sequencing data. Her focus was the genetic diversity and evolution of these corals in the Great Barrier Reef and Kimberley, northwestern Australia. The study's findings enhance our understanding of coral speciation and provide projections on coral adaptability to future climate changes.
