Sea anemones have symbiotic or mutualistic relationships with a variety of microorganisms that live within the anemone's tissues. The sea anemones can obtain nutrients from bacteria and single-celled organisms called dinoflagellates that photosynthesize or metabolize various chemicals found in seawater, and bacterial strains can also make antibiotics and other chemicals that protect the sea anemones from pathogens. Students in my lab are exploring the identities and functions of these symbiotic organisms in two sea anemones: Exaiptasia pallida and Diadumene lineata. Additional projects have focused on other aspects of anatomy and physiology of these sea anemones.
