Bromotryptamine and Bromotyramine Derivatives from the Tropical Southwestern Pacific Sponge Narrabeena nigra
This paper presents the first chemical study of a sponge from the genus Narabeena. The experiments isolated a large diversity of simple bromotryptamine and bromotryptamine derivatives. Analogues of these families were also found in other marine invertebrates, suggesting a microbial origin for these compounds.

An improved primer set and amplification protocol with increased specificity and sensitivity targeting the Symbiodinium ITS2 region for next-generation sequencing diversity assessment.
To study the coral reef holobiont diversity and specifically Symbiodinium, the algal symbionts of the animal host, specific and sensitive protocol must be found. This paper provides a standardized amplification protocol using a highly sensitive primer set. This protocol, used during Tara Pacific, will help maximize return of information from a wide range of sample
