The toxigenic and bloom-forming cyanobacterial genus Microcystis contains several ill-defined species. The 16S rDNA for two strains of toxic M. aeruginosa were sequenced and compared to available cyanobacterial, bacterial, and chloroplast 16S rRNA gene information. Phylogeny and the validity of a molecular taxonomy for the genus Microcystis is presented.
