Movie by TU Graz
Language: English
Target group: 16+

Due to their capability to utilize CO2 and convert it into O2 (photosynthesis) they are very interesting for biotechnological purposes. Therefore, those Cyanobacteria need to be cultivated and sometimes immobilized. Let’s accompany Lenny Yap to the Cyano-laboratories at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology at the Graz University of Technology. Let’s see the impressive light conditions that ensure that Cyanobacteria grow optimally.
