We wanted to let you know about a genome announcement that was accepted for publication today in ASM’s Microbiology Resource Announcements. The paper describes Coral Holobiont-associated alphaFlexiVirus 1 and 2 (CHFV1, CHFV2), which we assembled and annotated from metatranscriptomes from SCTLD-affected, disease-exposed and unexposed coral colonies in the USVI. CHFV1 and CHFV2 are available now on GenBank via accession #s OM030231 and OM030232, respectively. We hope that making these resources available immediately will accelerate primer development etc by the broader SCTLD research community!
I would particularly like to acknowledge first author Alex Veglia, as well as Kelsey Beavers, Laura Mydlarz and Marilyn Brandt for their work in generating this resource.
Veglia, A.J., Beavers, K., Van Buren, E.W., Meiling, S.S., Muller, E.M., Smith, T.B., Holstein, D.M., Apprill, A., Brandt, M.E., Mydlarz, L.D., Correa, A.M.S.
