Evaluating methods for purifying cyanobacterial cultures by qPCR and high-throughput Illumina sequencing.

Abstract

Cyanobacteria are commonly found in association with other microorganisms, which constitutes a great challenge during the isolation of cyanobacterial strains. Although several methods have been published for obtaining axenic cyanobacterial cultures, their efficiency is usually evaluated by observing the growth of non-cyanobacteria in culture media. In order… (More)
