A3 PICO 3G research article

A3 PICO 3G published
its very first research article

The aim of the study was to explore the possibility of bioremediation by the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. MK568070, isolated from the Adriatic Sea. High degree of lipid accumulation, along with >99% efficiency in N-removal showed its great potential for biomass production and wastewater remediation. Check the full article at the following link. It is open access!
