Supporting data for "Transcriptome of the Caribbean stony coral Porites astreoides from three developmental stages"

Mansour, T, A; Brown, Loretta M Roberson, C, T; Rosenthal, J, J (2016): Supporting data for "Transcriptome of the Caribbean stony coral Porites astreoides from three developmental stages" GigaScience Database. http://dx.doi.org/10.5524/100207 RIS BibTeX Text

The coral Porites astreoides is a ubiquitous species on modern Caribbean reefs that is resistant to increasing temperatures, overfishing, and other anthropogenic impacts that have threatened most coral species. Using sequences from the Illumina platform, we have assembled and annotated a transcriptome from this coral using three different developmental stages collected over several years: free-swimming larvae, newly-settled larvae, and adults (>10 cm in diameter). This resource will aid in the understanding of coral calcification, larval settlement, and host-symbiont interactions. A de novo transcriptome for the P. astreoides holobiont (coral plus algal symbiont) was assembled using 594 Mbp of raw Illumina sequencing data generated from five age-specific cDNA libraries. The new transcriptome consists of 867,255 transcript elements with an average length of 685 bases. The isolated P. astreoides assembly consists of 129,718 transcript elements with an average length of 811 bases and the isolated Symbiodinium sp. assembly had 186,177 transcript elements with an average length of 1,105 bases. This transcriptome represents a significant contribution to coral transcriptome data and will provide a valuable resource for researchers studying the ontogeny of gene expression patterns within both the coral and its dinoflagellate symbiont.
