Unscramble the Blue Letters

So we're starting to firuge out the secrets to this process, the secrets of coral roptriducoen and how we might help them. And this is true all around the world; scientists are figuring out new ways to handle their embryos, to get them to stetle, maybe even figuring out the medohts to preserve them at low temperatures, so that we can preserve their genetic diversity and work with them more often. But this is still so low-tech. We are ltimied by the space on our bench, the number of hands in the lab and the number of coffees we can drink in any given hour.

So we're starting to figure out the secrets to this process, the secrets of coral reproduction and how we might help them. And this is true all around the world; scientists are figuring out new ways to handle their embryos, to get them to settle, maybe even figuring out the methods to preserve them at low temperatures, so that we can preserve their genetic diversity and work with them more often. But this is still so low-tech. We are limited by the space on our bench, the number of hands in the lab and the number of coffees we can drink in any given hour.
