This project used previously collected data to genomically identify signatures of viral infection and determine if they are associated exclusively with stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD) disease signs  and/or colony disease susceptibility. This project also characterized the Symbiodiniaceae communities associated with SCTLD-infected and apparently healthy Florida corals in order to determine whether there is an association between Symbiodiniaceae and viral genetic diversity, and SCTLD infection.
