Method Autotrophic Growth Conditions. A 1-L culture of Synechocystis was cultivated autotrophically in a 1.25-L bioreactor (Bioflo 3000, New Brunswick Scientific, NJ) under a surface light flux of 150 µE/m^2/s in BG-11 medium (American Type Culture Collection medium 616) buffered with 10 mM HEPES under atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide at 30°C. The pH was controlled at 7.5±0.1. Growth was monitored spectrophotometrically by measuring the optical absorbance of cultures at 600 and 730 nm.
