Background and Key Publications

Our research groups have summarized different beneficial and pathogenic roles of the microbiomes associated with marine organisms, and proposed new terms and approaches to understand, and potentially improve their resilience.

Manipulations of the microbiome of marine invertebrates not only have the potential to improve these organisms resilience and resistance when subjected to environmental changes but can also be very useful for providing new insights into the molecular mechanisms of host-microbiome-environment interactions. The research teams leading this cooperation network have already written numerous papers on this topic which have started the discussion of the manipulation of BMMO across the wider coral reef community.
