Diversity and distribution of coral-associated bacteria
TLDR
Analysis of the branching coral Porites furcata showed that bacterial ribotypes can also be structured spatially within colonies, and corals and reefs represent landscapes of diverse, ecologically structured prokaryotic communities. Expand
The Marine Viromes of Four Oceanic Regions
TLDR
The results support the idea that viruses are widely dispersed and that local environmental conditions enrich for certain viral types through selective pressure. Expand
Genomic analysis of uncultured marine viral communities
TLDR
Diversity of the viral communities was extremely high, and the results showed that it would be possible to sequence the entire genome of an uncultured marine viral community. Expand
Baselines and Degradation of Coral Reefs in the Northern Line Islands
TLDR
Protection from overfishing and pollution appears to increase the resilience of reef ecosystems to the effects of global warming, and reefs without people exhibited less coral disease and greater coral recruitment relative to more inhabited reefs. Expand
Laboratory procedures to generate viral metagenomes
TLDR
This collection of laboratory protocols describes the steps to collect viruses from various samples with the specific aim of generating viral metagenome sequence libraries (viromes) using several concentration, purification, extraction, sequencing and heuristic bioinformatic methods. Expand
Metagenomic analysis of stressed coral holobionts.
TLDR
Structural and functional changes in coral microbial communities were evaluated and low-abundance Vibrio spp. Expand
Metagenomic analysis of the microbial community associated with the coral Porites astreoides.
TLDR
A metabolic and taxonomic snapshot of microbes associated with the reef-building coral Porites astreoides is provided and presents a basis for understanding how coral-microbial interactions structure the holobiont and coral reefs. Expand
Functional metagenomic profiling of nine biomes
TLDR
The magnitude of the microbial metabolic capabilities encoded by the viromes was extensive, suggesting that they serve as a repository for storing and sharing genes among their microbial hosts and influence global evolutionary and metabolic processes. Expand
Three Prochlorococcus Cyanophage Genomes: Signature Features and Ecological Interpretations
TLDR
These marine cyanophages appear to be variations of two well-known phages—T7 and T4—but contain genes that, if functional, reflect adaptations for infection of photosynthetic hosts in low-nutrient oceanic environments. Expand
Diversity of bacteria associated with the Caribbean coral Montastraea franksi
TLDR
The results of this study show that the microbial diversity associated with corals can be greatly underestimated when relying exclusively on culture-based methods. Expand
