Query: NC_017277:2776264 Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, complete genome Lineage: Synechocystis; Synechocystis; ; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Photosynthesis. Synechocystis is a genus of cyanobacteria primarily represented by the strain Synechocystis sp. PCC6803. S. sp. PCC6803 lives in freshwater and is capable of both phototrophic growth by oxygenic photosynthesis in sunlight and heterotrophic growth by glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation during dark periods. It is able to effectively anticipate transitions of light and dark phases by using a circadian clock.

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).
