  • Tue, 13 Apr 2021 16:40:48 +0000: Northern Star Coral Study Could Help Protect Tropical Corals - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
    Worldwide, coral reefs are in crisis. A new study in mSystems, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology, investigates antibiotic-induced disturbance of the coral (Astrangia poculata) and shows that antibiotic exposure significantly altered the composition of the coral’s mucus bacterial microbiome, but that all the treated corals recovered in two weeks in ambient seawater. The work is important because it suggests that stony Northern Star Coral may be able to recover its mucus microbiome following disturbance, it identifies specific microbes that may be important to assembly, and it demonstrates that algal symbionts may play a previously undocumented role in the microbial recovery and resilience to environmental change.
