Insights into microbiome flexibility of deep sea corals

10 August, 2017

In our latest publication Till Röthig & colleagues report on the remarkable microbiome flexibility of the widely distributed deep sea coral E. fistula. The microbiome composition of E. fistula showed remarkable differences between samples collected in situ and from long-term aquaria cultures. Thereby, such microbiome flexibility may help deep sea corals to thrive in the extreme environmental conditions of their environment.
