Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000009725.1 from ENA/EMBL
Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Synechocystis sp. pan proteome (fasta)

Model cyanobacterium that carries a complete set of genes for oxygenic photosynthesis, Synechocystis is also studied for its stress response and metabolism. The first glucose-tolerant strain was sequenced in 1996 (this strain Kazusa, SYNY3),while a second glucose tolerant strain, Synechocystis GT-S, and has been maintained as frozen glycerol stocks since the late 1980s. Careful comparison reveals that there is a single nucleotide change and two IS insertions between the Kazusa strain and the GT-S strain, with some changes to the sequence of the Kazusa strain also noticed. Although they have not been resubmitted strain GT-S also encodes the 4 plasmids sound in SYNY3 (adapted from PMID 21803841).
