Similarly, Plant growth promoting regulators covering a wide range of phytochemicals, hormones and other secondary metabolites released by bacteria (Figueiredo et al., 2007), cynobacteria (Yadav et al., 2011), fungi (Igarashi et al., 2003), algae, yeast and plants have substantial growth stimulatory effects at lower concentrations (Harms and Oplinger, 1993).
"Blue-green algae, or cynobacteria, can be fatal for animals and cause sickness and muscle pain in humans."

Indian scientists discuss recent work in wide-ranging areas including hazardous waste management, proteomics, bioinformatics tools and protocols in computer-assisted drug design, DNA biosensors, bioengineered nutraceuticals (foods for medicinal use), antigen technology for the identification of pathogens, immobilization technology employing biocatalysts, and the harnessing of bioactive compounds/organisms (e.g., thymic peptides, cynobacteria).
For cyst germination assays, it is important to consider the culture media for heterotrophic dinoflagellates; some species require organic compounds that could be supplied with the addition of specific chemical substances (urea or glycerol) or the use of live food, such as other algae (diatoms and cynobacteria).
