In the early, online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team from the US and Japan characterizes the relationship between two coral reef-associated organisms: the tropical, filter-feeding tunicate Lissoclinum patella and its alpha-proteobacterium symbiont, Candidatus Endolissoclinum faulkneri. Using metagenomic sequence data from tunicate samples sequenced using Roche 454, Illumina, or Sanger approaches, the researchers cobbled together a genome sequence for the bacterial symbiont. Though Ca. E.
