Paper published Voolstra et al. "Rapid Evolution of Coral Proteins Responsible for Interaction with the Environment"

Fresh from the press: We have recently completed a study on rapidly evolving genes in Acropora millepora and Acropora palmata. We found a number of interesting candidate genes, many of them potentially symbiosis-related. To our knowledge this is one of the first studies that conduct a transcriptome-wide screen between related coral species. We are pleased that our paper has been published by PLoS one.
