Stable Transformation of Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp.
Author:  Reinhard K Proels, date: 11/05/2014, view: 11562, Q&A: 0
Cyanobacteria are prokaryotes, which perform oxygenic photosynthesis. Among them, the unicellular cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 (hereafter Synechocystis) is a well characterized model system for studies on oxygenic ...
