Method Abstract: "Here [investigators] describe Synechococcus elongatus UTEX 2973, a unicellular cyanobacterium capable of rapid autotrophic growth, comparable to heterotrophic industrial hosts such as yeast."
Comments P.2 left column bottom paragraph: "The doubling time of Synechococcus UTEX 2973 increased to 2.3 hrs at 38°C (Table 1). However, this rate is still nearly twice as fast as that for Synechococcus PCC 7942 (~4.1 hrs) under similar conditions (Fig. 1A). Growth rates of three other commonly used cyanobacterial strains, Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 and Synechococcus PCC 6301, were also significantly slower than that of Synechococcus UTEX 2973 (Fig. 1A and Table 1)." See notes beneath table
