Using an off-the-shelf inkjet printer, the team printed electrically conductive carbon nanotubes onto a piece of paper, then printed cyanobacteria
(photosynthetic microorganisms that can produce small amounts of electricity) onto the nanotubes.
The solar cells printed using cyanobacteria
can generate electric current both in dark and light.
Signs and symptoms associated with HAB exposure have occurred from exposure to cyanobacteria
in situations in which toxins were not detected (4,5).
In the last decades, cyanobacteria
have been gaining attention in ecology, biochemistry, physiology and molecular biology, because of their high potential for antibiotics and pharmacologically active compounds production (Cardozo et al.
, commonly known as blue green algae, are micro-organisms related to bacteria that are capable of photosynthesis (an important biochemical process where light is converted into chemical energy such as glucose).
By disabling the gene that encodes the enzyme in two cyanobacteria
that normally produce chlorophyll f, the researchers demonstrated that the enzyme is required for the production of chlorophyll f.
Physiological adaptations of cyanobacteria
to survive in hypersaline environments are related with specific mechanisms that regulate the osmotic stress internally (Hagemann, 2011).
The occurrence and survival of cyanobacteria
that live in environments that are permanently anoxic or in environments that become anoxic overnight depend on their ability to generate energy in the dark.
Adverse human health outcomes have been associated with marine dinoflagellates, diatoms, and cyanobacteria
and Sporomusa ovate are widely used in artificial photosynthesis process.
are the most abundant organisms in aquatic ecosystems.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has accomplished this by bioengineering cyanobacteria
to produce ethylene.
Today's oldest known cyanobacteria
fossils date to around 2.
Chlorophylls b and d have a limited distribution in oceanic photoautotrophs, (72) whereas the newly discovered chlorophyll f appears to be also limited to particular cyanobacteria
Various strains of cyanobacteria
were previously isolated and characterized for chromium metal resistance, plant growth promotion and production of non protein thiols.
