Comments "Other widely studied cyanobacterial strains grow significantly slower [than Synechococcus PCC7002 BNID 111251]: for example, Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 which was reported to have a doubling time of 12h at (primary source), and Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 with a doubling time of 6–7h (BNID 111253)."
