A stony coral cell atlas illuminates the molecular and cellular basis of

coral symbiosis, calcification, and immunity

Over 40 cell types across the life cycle of Stylophora pistillata, a stony coral, are identified through the use of single-cell RNA sequencing. From this reference atlas, the molecular pathways underpinning coral reef building, specialized immune cells, and the metabolic programs involved in symbiosis between coral and algae partners are described.
