Hi Pete, It's hard to say exactly but we are optimistic about our discovery of potentially beneficial bacteria on more resistant corals. We think that this is the most likely area to generate a treatment for coral diseases since selecting for or promoting growth of beneficial bacteria would be less intrusive than other treatments like administration of antibiotics. Our lab and others are currently looking into this possibility. Promoting good bacteria could also make corals more resistant to stressors other than disease (like higher temperature, ocean acidification, etc.) -Sarah
