Climate change promotes parasitism in a coral symbiosis

PMCID: 5864192
PMID: 29379177
DOI: 10.1038/s41396-018-0046-8
call_split See protocol

[…] were aligned and trimmed using Geneious 6.0 (Biomatters Ltd). Consensus sequences were used for BLAST searches to identify the closest match in NCBI GenBank. Sequences were cross-referenced with the GeoSymbio database [].A second aliquot of the frozen cell suspension was loaded into a hemocytometer to count the total number of dividing Symbiodinium cells (doublets) relative to the total number of […]


Acceptable symbiont cell size differs among cnidarian species and may limit symbiont diversity

PMCID: 5520142
PMID: 28323278
DOI: 10.1038/ismej.2017.17
call_split See protocol

[…] nces were analyzed using DNASTAR (Lasergene, Madison, WI, USA) and MacVector (Accelrys, San Diego, CA, USA) and assigned to clades by performing BLAST searches against the ITS2 sequence database from GeoSymbio () or GenBank. […]


Zooxanthellal genetic varieties in giant clams are partially determined by species intrinsic and growth related characteristics

PLoS One
PMCID: 5315387
PMID: 28212387
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0172285

[…] dal level using a BLAST search via the website of the DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ; Then, each clade clone was further classified into ITS2 types according to GeoSymbio []. […]


Shift of symbiont communities in Acropora tenuis juveniles under heat stress

PMCID: 5732543
PMID: 29255647
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.4055

[…] d sequence data were edited and assembled using ATSQ, version 6.0.1 (Genetyx Co., Tokyo, Japan), and identified through BLAST searches of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database (INSD) and the GeoSymbio database (), which provides alignments of Symbiodinium nrITS2 sequences that were published between 1982 and 2012. […]


Coral community response to bleaching on a highly disturbed reef

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4753424
PMID: 26876092
DOI: 10.1038/srep20717

[…] Of the 20 distinct operational taxonomic units (OTU) identified, ten were assigned to subclade D1 and two to subclade C3 (both found in one colony of P. sinensis) based on the top BLAST+ hits to the GeoSymbio database. It was not possible to assign the remaining seven OTUs to subclade level but they all belonged to clade D. […]


Productivity links morphology, symbiont specificity and bleaching in the evolution of Caribbean octocoral symbioses

PMCID: 4817624
