With the Live Oscillatoria Blue-Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) Culture, Class Size of 30 for biology and life science, study Cyanobacteria, which are photosynthetic prokaryotic organisms utilizing chlorophyll a.
Oscillatoria. Freshwater and on moist soil. Unbranched filaments without heterocysts and akinetes. Capable of an oscillatory motion.
Cyanobacteria also known as the blue-green algae, are photosynthetic prokaryotic organisms utilizing chlorophyll a. Unlike other photosynthetic bacteria, the cyanobacteria evolve oxygen and may have been responsible for the early accumulation of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere. Species may be characterized by the formation of akinetes—thick-walled non-motile spores, and heterocysts—thick-walled translucent cells capable of fixing nitrogen.
