We have a limited understanding of genomic interactions that occur among partners for many symbioses. One of the most important symbioses in tropical reef habitats involves Symbiodinium. Most work examining Symbiodinium-host interactions involves cnidarian partners. To fully and broadly understand the conditions that permit Symbiodinium to procure(More)
One of the most important ecological interactions that occurs in shallow tropical habitats worldwide involves trophic (feeding) interactions between symbiotic dinoflagellate algae and a variety of invertebrate and protistan hosts, such as sponges and coral. The algal symbionts, known as Symbiodinium, reside within the host cells, and have long been(More)
