Cyanobacteria (Phycobiliproteins)

Cyanobacteria have been found to be a numerically abundant faction of the phytoplankton community. Their roles in primary production, community structure, and spatial and temporal distribution are of interest for numerous scientific studies as well as natural water monitoring. Since chlorophyll fluorescence cannot be used to accurately determine cyanobacterial presence, analyzing phycobilin concentrations is essential for detecting, quantifying, and monitoring cyanobacterial levels.
