Genomics and evolution of symbiont transmission in coral reefs (2019–2022) Abstract: Reef-building corals are sustained by symbiosis between the coral and the alga Symbiodinium. Corals acquire specific Symbiodinium via inheritance and/or from the environment. Breakdown of symbiosis under environmental stress leads to coral bleaching and death. This Project aims to understand how genomes of differently … Read More
