Abstract
Cyanobacteria are prokaryotic aerobic photosynthetic microorganisms with the capacity to remove nutrients from wastewater and synthesize a large variety of bioactive compounds and valuable byproducts. Among those valuable byproducts, glycogen (carbohydrates) and polyhydroxybutyrates (PHB) are receiving increasing interest due to their potential as biofuel substrate and as bioplastic, respectively. The main objective in this PhD thesis was to cultivate and select cyanobacteria from a mixed micro...
