Cyanobacteria are free-living procaryotes capable of oxygenic photosynthesis, containing both photosystem I and photosystem II [1] including the oxygen evolving complex. Cyanobacteria as a model system for studying the oxygenic photosynthesis has a great advantage compared to plant chloroplasts; being a procaryote organism it permits the use of modern molecular genetic techniques.
