A bioenergetic assessment of photosynthetic growth of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 in continuous cultures

BACKGROUND Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, a model organism used for bioenergy and bioplastic production, was grown in continuous culture to assess its most important bioenergetic parameters. RESULTS Biomass yield on light energy of 1.237 g mol photons(-1) and maintenance energy requirement of 0.00312 mol photons g(-1) h(-1) were calculated. This corresponded… CONTINUE READING
