Previous studies have provided evidence that color measurements enable on site quantification of superficial biofilms, thereby avoiding the need for sampling. In the present study, the efficiency of color measurements to evaluate to what extent pigment production is affected by...

We identified a spontaneously generated mutant from Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 wild-type cells grown in BG-11 agar plates containing 5 mM Glu and 10 microM DCMU. This mutant carries an R7L mutation on the alpha-subunit of cyt b559 in photosystem II...

Bacterial biofilms are complex biological systems that are difficult to eradicate at a medical, industrial, or environmental level. Biofilms confer bacteria protection against external factors and antimicrobial treatments. Taking into account that about 80% of human infections are caused by...

A consensus is lacking whether monochromatic rather than broad-spectrum illumination is more efficient for photosynthetic microbe production platforms. Light wavelength and intensity were tuned to pigment composition for growth of the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803. Phycocyanin (PC)-targeting LEDs (620nm) provided...

In the present study, seven axenic fresh water microchlorophytes were isolated and identified as Tetradesmus dimorphus (NEIST BT-1), Chlorella sorokiniana (NEIST BT-2), Desmodesmus sp. (NEIST BT-10), Selenastrum sp. (NEIST BT-A6), Tetradesmus obliquus (NEIST BT-A1), Tetradesmus sp. (NEIST BT-A10), and Asterarcys...
Phycology media can be prepared from concentrated solutions or from powdered salt mixtures. The concentrated solutions are complete, including vitamins, and should be stored frozen.
