Nitzan Soffer

Nitzan's PhD research focused on viruses associated with diseased corals. Specifically, she analyzed viral metagenomes from corals with signs of white plague disease and/or bleaching from the US Virgin Islands using a combination of fieldwork (SCUBA), molecular lab work and bioinformatics. Among other discoveries, she found strong associations with a specific group of eukaryotic ssDNA viruses and white plague infected Montastraea annularis corals (Soffer et al., 2013)
