This collection of 23 viral metagenomes and their associated 16S amplicon data were derived from seawater (n=2) and tissues of 1) apparently healthy Montastraea annularis corals (n=2), 2) diseased M. annularis corals (n=7) exhibiting signs of white plague disease, 3) bleached tissues of M. annularis corals exhibiting signs of white plague disease (n=7), and 4) bleached tissues of apparently healthy but bleached M. annularis (n=5).

Data access: These data are stored at Metavir a web server designed to annotate viral metagenomic sequences (raw reads or assembled contigs). This dataset on the published viromes, can be identified under "public projects", under the project entitled “WP reads – Soffer et al 2013.” One must "launch" each library and download the associated FASTA files individually: A=bleached from diseased samples, H=healthy bleached samples, D=diseased samples, UB=unbleached healthy samples, SW= seawater, SWD=seawater diseased.
