Cyanobacteria are a fascinating and versatile group of bacteria of immense biological importance. Thought to be ancient colonisers of the earth, these bacteria are the photosynthetic ancestors of chloroplasts in eukaryotes such as plants and algae. In addition, they can fix nitrogen, survive in very hostile environments, can be symbiotic, have circadian rhythms, exhibit gliding mobility, and can differentiate into specialised cell types called heterocysts.
