Sept 2020: We present a new draft genome assembly of Symbiodiniumfitti that we used for SNP analysis in a new pre-print. We reveal symbionts first partition by host, not geography, in an highly specific coral-symbiont association. Work led by Hannah Reich, a bright and persistent scientist that kept us going even when we were utterly confused by the results.
July 2020: All the nitty-gritty details of our SNPchip is available in recent Scientific Reports publication.
