Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: 15 benthic water samples (10L each) were collected and filtered for metagenomic analysis. Bacteria were cultured from 3 colonies of coral Lophelia pertusa. Samples of coral tissue were collected for molecular biology analyses (1 Lophelia, 8 Enallopsammia, 6 Desmophyllum, and 5 Acanthogorgia).
