Dear Coral List,
I am actively seeking funds to research the viruses that target COTS.
Please see the link below to a short video to explain my research idea:

After all the funding that has been invested into COTS research in recent decades, I am flabbergasted that we still no nothing about their microbiome or the viruses that infect them!
I am not suggesting we crop dust reefs with viruses - far from it - but if we are to look at efficient and effective methods at COTS removal, surely this is one area we should at least become more informed about?
Thanks for your time in reading this post -
