    Crystal structures of virus-like photosystem I complexes from the mesophilic cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803

    Yuval Mazor et al.
    The structure of the photosystem I (PSI) complex from Synechocystis is determined, and reaction center subunits engineered to resemble a viral PSI are found to promote promiscuous electron acceptor properties.

    Protein gradients on the nucleoid position the carbon-fixing organelles of cyanobacteria

    Joshua S MacCready et al.
    Carboxysomes, the carbon-fixation machinery of cyanobacteria, are equidistantly-positioned by dynamic gradients of the protein McdA on the nucleoid that emerge through interaction with a previously unidentified carboxysome factor, McdB.

    Flavodiiron proteins 1–to-4 function in versatile combinations in O2 photoreduction in cyanobacteria

    Anita Santana-Sanchez et al.
    In vivo evidence is provided indicating that Flv2/Flv4, together with Flv1/Flv3, mediate O2 photoreduction downstream of PSI in a highly coordinated manner.

    Quantitative insights into the cyanobacterial cell economy

    Tomáš Zavřel et al.
    Phototrophic growth laws are elucidated by combining computational modeling and experiments for quantitative evaluation of cellular physiology, morphology and proteome allocation across a wide range of light conditions.

    Cyanobacteria use micro-optics to sense light direction

    Nils Schuergers et al.
    The cells of a cyanobacterium act as spherical micro-lenses, allowing the cell to see a light source and move towards it.

    Abundant toxin-related genes in the genomes of beneficial symbionts from deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels

    Lizbeth Sayavedra et al.
    Beneficial symbiotic bacteria encode an exceptional number of toxin-related genes that are all expressed by the symbionts in the host, supporting their key role in host-microbe interactions.
