Patterns of Gene Expression in a Scleractinian Coral Undergoing Natural Bleaching

Seneca, Francois O; Foret, Sylvain; Ball, Eldon; Smith-Keune, Carolyn; Miller, David J.; van Oppen, Madeleine


Coral bleaching is a major threat to coral reefs worldwide and is predicted to intensify with increasing global temperature. This study represents the first investigation of gene expression in an Indo-Pacific coral species undergoing natural bleaching which involved the loss of algal symbionts. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction experiments were conducted to select and evaluate coral internal control genes (ICGs), and to investigate selected coral genes of interest (GOIs) for...[Show more]
