ITS2 is the marker of choice for identifying algal symbionts associated with corals. Yet, the multi copy nature of the ITS2 region is not accounted for in conventional analysis pipelines and make interpretation of NGS data challenging. In our latest
publication by Hume et al. we present SymPortal a novel analytical framework that harnesses the intragenomic variance of the IT2 region to genetically resolve algal symbionts associated with corals.
SymPortal is free, easy to use and community-driven. For more information visit SymPortal. org or read the associated publication hy Hume et al. out now in Molecular Ecology
