Natural volcanic CO2 seeps reveal future trajectories for host–microbial associations in corals and sponges
Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are rapidly rising causing an increase in the partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) in the ocean and a reduction in pH known as ocean acidification (OA). NaturalExpand

Host-associated coral reef microbes respond to the cumulative pressures of ocean warming and ocean acidification
Key calcifying reef taxa are currently threatened by thermal stress associated with elevated sea surface temperatures (SST) and reduced calcification linked to ocean acidification (OA). Here weExpand

Unraveling the microbial processes of black band disease in corals through integrated genomics
Coral disease outbreaks contribute to the ongoing degradation of reef ecosystems, however, microbial mechanisms underlying the onset and progression of most coral diseases are poorly understood.Expand

HoloVir: A Workflow for Investigating the Diversity and Function of Viruses in Invertebrate Holobionts
Abundant bioinformatics resources are available for the study of complex microbial metagenomes, however their utility in viral metagenomics is limited. HoloVir is a robust and flexible data analysisExpand

Morphological characterization of virus-like particles in coral reef sponges
Marine sponges host complex microbial consortia that vary in their abundance, diversity and stability amongst host species. While our understanding of sponge-microbe interactions has dramaticallyExpand

Prevalent and persistent viral infection in cultures of the coral algal endosymbiont Symbiodinium
Reef corals are under threat from bleaching and disease outbreaks that target both the host animal and the algal symbionts within the coral holobiont. A viral origin for coral bleaching has beenExpand

Reef invertebrate viromics: diversity, host specificity and functional capacity
Recent metagenomic analyses have revealed a high diversity of viruses in the pelagic ocean and uncovered clear habitat-specific viral distribution patterns. Conversely, similar insights into theExpand

Coral-associated viral communities show high levels of diversity and host auxiliary functions
Stony corals (Scleractinia) are marine invertebrates that form the foundation and framework upon which tropical reefs are built. The coral animal associates with a diverse microbiome comprised ofExpand

Comparative genome-centric analysis reveals seasonal variation in the function of coral reef microbiomes
Microbially mediated processes contribute to coral reef resilience yet, despite extensive characterisation of microbial community variation following environmental perturbation, the effect onExpand
