BMC Bioinformatics. 2013 Apr 21;14:133. Over a 24 h time course, 6 samples for RNA isolation were taken at the following time points: 30 minutes before and after light is switched off, (sample 1 - CT 11.5 and sample 2 - CT 12.5), 30 minutes before midnight (sample 3 - CT 17.5), 30 minutes before and after light onset (sample 4 - CT 23.5 and sample 5 - CT 0.5) and 30 minutes before noon (sample 6 - CT 5.5) Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 was grown in BG11-medium [44] at 30°C under continuous illumination with white light of 120 μmol of photons m −2 s −1 and a continuous stream of air. The optical density of the culture was monitored by measuring the absorbance at 750 nm. Cultures were synchronized with three cycles of light/dark 12 h:12 h prior sampling. Environmental Light
