    About This Project

    This project will investigate bacteria that could protect corals and shellfish from fatal infections by the bacterium Vibrio coralliilyticus. Several bacteria we’ve found produce antibacterial compounds that inhibit V. coralliilyticus growth and potentially prevent infection. If we can learn what these compounds are and how they work, we can use this knowledge to develop treatments before the world’s reefs and shellfish are beyond saving.
