Project Description
I have included two strains of unicellular aerobic N2 fixing cyanobacteria that were isolated from coastal waters off Zanzibar. The 16S rRNA genes of these strains are 99% similar, but their morphologies and growth characteristics are completely different. A BLAST search showed that they were 99% similar to Cyanothece and Gloeocapsa. Since they are definitely not Gloeocapsa I have preliminary assigned them to Cyanothece.
