Hello colleagues,

we have recently completed a study on rapidly evolving genes in Acropora millepora and Acropora palmata. We found a number of interesting candidate genes, many of them potentially symbiosis-related.

The manuscript can be downloaded here:


To our knowledge this is one of the first studies that conduct a transcriptome-wide screen between related coral species.

Thanks and cheers,
