Cyanobacteria are photoautotrophic organisms capable of oxygen-producing photosynthesis similar to that in eukaryotic algae and plants, and because of this, they have been used as model organisms for the study of the mechanism and regulation of oxygen-producing photosynthesis. To understand the entire genetic system in cyanobacteria, the nucleotide sequence of the entire genome of the unicellular cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 has been determined. The total length of the circular… CONTINUE READING
