Abstract

Summary: The DNA base compositions of 176 strains of cyanobacteria were determined by thermal denaturation or by CsCl density gradient centrifugation. A summary of all data now available for this prokaryotic group is presented and the taxonomic and evolutionary implications are discussed.
