Bioproduction of antimicrobial compounds by using marine filamentous cyanobacterium
Chen and collaborators found that cyanobacterium
could photosynthesise using light just outside the visible spectrum - at 710nm, in the infrared region using a modified chlorophyll molecule.

Glutathione synthetase gshB gene in the cyanobacterium
Synechococcus sp PCC 7942 encodes a functional glutathione synthetase , the gshB gene includes an open reading frame of 969 nucleotides, which encodes a polypeptide of 323 amino acid residues with an approximate molecular mass of 35 kDa.

By using our data with current climate models, we can predict that in 50 years, the cyanobacterium
that fares better in warm temperatures will push the cold-loving one off our map," said Professor Garcia-Pichel.
