In vitro cultured tissues and cells of corals can provide a useful tool for studies on the symbiosis between coral and zooxanthellae, cytotoxicology, environmental stress and biomineralization in corals. This paper has reviewed the progress in the dissociation and culture of coral cells, prepa-ration of cell aggregates and tissue balls of corals and their application. The future prospect of the tissue and cell culture of corals is also predicted.
