We have developed a technique for determining the genetic structure of populations of filamentous cyanobacteria. The sequence diversity at specific gene loci is first characterised in a range of clonal cultures; subsequent analysis involves individual trichomes collected directly from natural populations. This technique has been used to examine the population genetic structure of Nodularia in the Baltic Sea and Planktothrix in Lake Zürich. For Nodularia, studies utilising four polymorphic loci… CONTINUE READING
