Query: NC_011884:831905 Cyanothece sp. PCC 7425, complete genome 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.

General Information: Marine cyanobacterium. This non-motile bacterium is a free-living marine organism that is one of the most abundant, as well as the smallest, on earth, and contributes heavily to carbon cycling in the marine environment. This cyanobacterium grows in areas of nitrogen and phosphorus limitation and is unique in that it utilizes divinyl chlorophyll a/b proteins as light-harvesting systems instead of phycobiliproteins. These pigments allow harvesting of light energy from blue wavelengths at low light intensity.
