Latest Cyanobacteria Stories
WASHINGTON, April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA has joined forces with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and U.S.
A type of bacteria growing in a hot spring near Yellowstone National Park in Montana uses a previously unidentified process to harvest energy and produce oxygen from sunlight, according to new research published in a recent edition of the journal Science.
The International Space Station welcomes up to eight supply vessels a year bringing oxygen, water and food for the six astronauts continuously circling our planet. Building, launching, docking and unloading these spacecraft is costly and time-consuming – is there a better way?
Nutrex Hawaii introduces Green Complete SuperFood Powder, which uses natural vanilla to add a delicious flavor to the combination of Hawaiian Spirulina and organic greens and organic antioxidants.
Countless marine microbes called Prochlorococcus are the primary basis for most ocean food webs, yet microbiologists know very little about the diversity with this group of photosynthetic bacteria.
UC Riverside research team challenges conventional view of a simple two-step rise in early oxygen on Earth; study suggests instead dynamic oxygen concentrations that rose and fell over billions of years
Marine cyanobacteria — tiny ocean plants that produce oxygen and make organic carbon using sunlight and CO2 — are primary engines of Earth's biogeochemical and nutrient cycles.
Today, Nutrex Hawaii announced the launch of new Spearmint Flavored Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica®, the first mint flavored pure spirulina to hit the market.
Scientists able to study a photosynthetic complex -- arguably the most important bit of organic chemistry on the planet -- in its complete functioning state
Cyanobacteria, found in just about every ecosystem on Earth, are one of the few bacteria that can create their own energy through photosynthesis and "fix" carbon – from carbon dioxide molecules – and convert it into fuel inside of miniscule compartments called carboxysomes.
The Paleoproterozoic is the first of three subdivisions of the Proterozoic Eon (occurring from 2.5 billion to 1.6 billion years ago (Ga). This period is marked by the first stabilization of the continents, and also when cyanobacteria--a type of bacteria that uses biochemical processes of photosynthesis to produce oxygen--evolved. Experts have found paleontological evidence that during at least part of the Paleoproterozoic era, about 1.8 Ga, the earth year was about 450 days long, with days...
- Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
