Sponge metatranscriptomics paper out

In our latest sponge metatranscritomics paper we revealed the most expressed functions of the Stylissa carteri-associated microbial community and linked them to the dominant taxonomic members of the microbiome. This work demonstrates the applicability of metatranscriptomics to explore poorly characterized symbiotic consortia and expands our knowledge of the ecologically relevant functions carried out by coral reef sponge symbionts.
