Dear colleagues,

For those interested in coral disease, please allow me to draw your attention to a new open access article published in the ISME journal about bacterial community structures in healthy and White Plague Diseased coral species.

In our 16S comparative framework analysis,  corals displayed species-specific bacterial communities that are different from disease-associated bacteria. Health and disease were as strong a discriminator between colonies as species indicating that bacterial community structure of disease is conserved over coral species boundaries.


All the best,
