Host Lineage: Cyanothece; Cyanothece; ; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Cyanothece sp. PCC 7425 was isolated from a rice field in Senegal. Unlike some other Cyanothece strains, Cyanothece 7425 appears to be an obligate autotroph. Cyanothece may prove very important in biological hydrogen production, as it is missing the uptake hydrogenase enzyme.
