Light Microscopy image. As a colony of a reef-building coral (P. damicornis) is infected by its ruthless nemesis, the bacteria V.coralliilyticus, one courageous polyp decides to bail-out of his mothership, in hope of continuing her legacy in a safe haven.The bailed-out polyp, on the right, safe and sound with all its symbiotic algae (red – Chlorophyll) and tentacles presentingthe naturally occurring GFP (green), gazes upon the misfortune of his twin, a necrotic polyp (on the left), his bodyscavenged on by genetically-modified fluorescent bacteria (blue), revealing the skeleton of the colony on which it oncethrived (white).
