We have tested a set of oligonucleotide primers originally developed for the specific amplification of 16S rRNA gene segments from cyanobacteria, in order to determine their versatility as an identification tool for phototrophic eucaryotes. Using web-based bioinformatics tools we determined that these primers not only targeted cyanobacterium sequences as(More)
Cyanobacteria are an ancient and diverse group of photosynthetic microorganisms, which inhabit many different and extreme environments. This indicates a high degree of biological adaptation, which has enabled these organisms to thrive and compete effectively in nature. The filamentous cyanobacterium, Lyngbya majuscula, produces several promising antifungal(More)
