NC_013161:4209554 Cyanothece sp. PCC 8802, complete genome
Host Lineage: Cyanothece; Cyanothece; ; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Isolation: Rice fields in southern Taiwan; Country: Taiwan; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. Cyanothece 8802, like many cyanobacterial strains, can grow as an autotroph with CO(2) as carbon source. However, its optimum growth in the laboratory requires addition of an inorganic carbon source such as bicarbonate. Like many other Cyanothece species it fixes not only CO(2) but also N(2).
