Physiological response of the Cyanobacterium synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 to fluctuating light
Photosynthetic microbes are a promising feedstock for renewable biofuels, but the yields of industrial cultivation systems will need significant improvements if they are to be economically viable and succeed. One particular challenge faced by photosynthetic microbes in commercial production systems is the highly dynamic light environment created by vertical mixing within dense cultures. Rapid changes in light intensity make it difficult for these microbes to acclimate and utilize the available light efficiently. Attempts to identify targets for genetically improving photosynthetic microbes to ...
