It’s that time of year again, when the sessions get advertised on the
coral-list! Get 'em while they're hot!

Are you working on coral microbiology, microbial ecology, metagenomics,
symbiosis, etc.? All corals, all depths, and all things microscopic
associated with them are welcome! We invite you to submit abstracts for
oral and poster presentations to a session organized around this topic at
the upcoming meeting in Hawaii in February 2017. The abstract submission
deadline is October 14, 2016.

Honolulu, Hawaii

Session 005 – Coral Micrbiomes: Shallow, Mesophotic, Deep-Sea

It is now recognized that corals are truly consortia involving numerous
microbial associates. This session will examine studies of coral-associated
microbial communities, along the depth continuum of corals accessible by
snorkeling, to those in the twilight zone, to those only reachable by
submersibles or remotely-operated vehicles. Topics such as biodiversity of
coral microbiomes (bacteria, archaea, eukaryotes, viruses), biogeography,
shifts in microbiomes (in response to disease, climate change, light
regime, geography, etc.), and roles of coral-associated microbes are

Looking forward to seeing you there!
