Our latest publication in Frontiers in Marine Science describe the bacterial community of two commonly used strains of the sea anemone Exaiptasia that have been cultured in the laboratory long-term under identical conditions. We found a distinct bacterial microbiota for each strain, indicating the presence of host-specific microbial consortia.
