Algae Research Supply: Algae Culture Anabaena variabilis

Anabaena variabilis is a filamentous cyanobacteria. It is photosynthetic and can It also can convert atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia via nitrogen fixation.

Anabaena variabilis is great for studying algae blooms and photosynthesis.  It is often used for reseraching the beginnings of multicellular life due to its filamentous characterization and cellular-differentiation capabilities.

 This culture is great for science fair projects investigating blue green algae blooms.  A variabilis is a freshwater strain that will bloom!  Suggestions on projects include finding ways to make the algae not grow (bleach, salts, grazing animals - basically algae torture)
