3D Printing Coral Homes for Algae

A research team from Cambridge University and the University of California San Diego has found a way to more effectively utilize the symbiosis of coral structures and microalgae, creating new light-harvesting approaches to cultivate algae. These developments could easily help preserving the ecosystem coral reef in the future.
