World’s first simultaneous genetic sequencing of host coral, symbiont algae

This item was filled under Climate
Coral health and survival largely depend on the interaction between the host coral, a photosynthetic symbiont algae, and an associated community of micro-organisms. Hence, constructing a genetic dataset of the entire coral community, or so-called the coral holobiont, is essential for understanding their molecular interactions. Researchers have successfully sequenced the genetic information of the Porites australiensis coral and its symbionts....
