Supplemental Information

Supp. Table S1. CSS normalized sequence counts for all annotated viruses

The viral spreadsheet is completed with genome organization information and information about respective hosts. A1M – A4M: aposymbiotic; I1M – I4M = partially populated (after 12 days of infection); S1M – S4M = fully symbiotic (fully infected, after 30 days of infection).

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3343v1/supp-1

Supp. Table S2. Abundance changes of viruses associated with Aiptasia in relation to aposymbiotic, partially populated, and fully symbiotic anemones

Shown are viral taxa tested, ANOVA p-values (significant values in bold), and associated post-hoc Tukey tests, as well as assortment to the ‘increase’ and ‘decrease’ group.

Supp. Table S3. Aiptasia core virome and viromes associated with aposymbiotic, partially populated, and fully symbiotic anemones of Aiptasia

Only viruses present in 100% of each respective symbiotic state were considered. Viruses present across all samples comprise the core virome. Members of the core virome are highlighted in bold.
