Abstract

Casey Whalen studied the bacterial community associated with microhabitats and developing larvae of the soft coral Lobophytum pauciflorum. He also identified in L. pauciflorum potential homologs of proteins with known antimicrobial properties in other Cnidaria. His findings contribute to our collective knowledge on host-symbiont interactions, especially in the understudied Octocorallia.
