Coral Microbiome Projects Database (CMP)


The Coral Microbiome Projects (CMP) database brings together next generation sequencing data of coral-associated microorganisms from studies conducted thoughout the world’s reefs, with the goal of enhancing knowledge and advancing understanding of coral-microbial relationships. The data are hosted on the CMP portal on the Marine Biological Laboratory’s VAMPS website, and are accessible for download, analysis, and visualization by anyone with a web browser. Visit the CMP to examine or download existing data, or use the private mode to view new sequencing data in comparison to the CMP data.
